Dr. Corey has dedicated himself to developing teams to solve some of the most complex problems in virology.
Dr. Corey earned his M.D. at the University of Michigan. He has received numerous awards in antiviral chemotherapy and medical virology. He is a fellow of the Infectious Diseases Society of America and a member of the National Academy of Sciences Institute of Medicine and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Dr. Corey is a man of many interests although time to read, write and socialize outside of medicine seems limited. He enjoys sports and is a lifelong tennis player, occasional skier, poor golfer and fan of early morning exercise. He has had many titles in life and feels they all are overrated except for being the “Papa” to his four granddaughters and one grandson.
