Assistant Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases) and of Microbiology and Immunology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My lab's goals are to better understand virus-host protein interactions, identify host partners conservatively required by multiple viruses, and develop broad-spectrum host-centered antiviral approaches with a high genetic barrier for resistance. We combine novel proteomic approaches, including microfluidics platforms, with molecular virology, biochemical, and genomic approaches to achieve these goals. We focus on viruses from the Flaviviridae family (hepatitis C and dengue), as well as HIV.

Bio Feryal Erhun received her Ph.D. in Business Administration, with a concentration in Production and Operations Management from the Graduate School of Industrial Administration, Carnegie Mellon University in 2002. She holds a B.S. and a M.S. in Industrial Engineering from Bilkent University, Turkey. She was a faculty member in the Management Science and Engineering Department of Stanford University from 2002 until 2013.
Feryal investigates foundations of contemporary problems in operations management (OM) and use them to develop solutions to practical engineering problems. Her research interests are in the strategic interactions between stakeholders in supply chains. In this context, Feryal has studied topics related to supply chain contracting, capacity, and inventory decisions. More recently, she has turned her attention to socially responsible operations: today, both for‐profit businesses and nonprofit organizations aim to create the highest value for their shareholders, employees, partners, and the environment. Her research on nonprofits, healthcare OM, and sustainable supply chains has informed the development of theory addressing the unique challenges arising for these organizations and has extended traditional OM theory to these new and important settings.
Feryal is a strong proponent of practice-based research. Through collaborations with Intel Corporation, Cisco, Stanford University Medical Center, etc., she has been able to combine her academic interests with firms’ needs to deliver insights for both communities. Recently, her research group has designed a decision-support system for optimizing capital investment decisions for firms in capital-intensive industries in collaboration with Intel Corporation. This work has been selected as one of the finalists in the 2012 Franz Edelman Award, which recognizes outstanding examples of innovative operations research that improves organizations, and Feryal has been inducted as an Edelman Laureate. Feryal is a recipient of 2006 NSF CAREER Award with her project titled “Moving from Risks to Opportunities: An Exploratory Study of Risk Management in Supply Chains.”
