He also holds the position of Adjunct Professor at the Department of Pathology of the University of Pennsylvania. 

Dr. Douek studies the processes that determine the course of human infectious diseases in which the immune system plays a central role in their pathogenesis and outcome. These include HIV, SARS-CoV-2 and other diseases of pandemic potential. His particular interests lie in inflammation and immune reconstitution, the microbiome and mucosal immunology, antigen-specific adaptive immune responses, and host genetic factors of disease susceptibility and progression. He aims to use the knowledge gained to develop new therapeutic and vaccine approaches. In 2021, Dr. Douek launched the PREMISE pandemic preparedness initiative at the Vaccine Research Center. His work has been published in close to 400 peer-reviewed papers, in several high-impact journals. He has been in the top 1% most-cited researchers in their respective fields since 2014 and has an h-index of 100.
