Dr. Paul Gottlieb is an associate medical professor at the City College of New York.

His research group is studying and characterizing bacteriophage f12, one of the newly identified members of the family Cystoviridae. These viruses contain a genome consisting of three segments of double-stranded RNA (dsRNA). Their mechanism of RNA packaging, replication and transcription is similar to that of the Reoviridae. To date, the cystoviruses are the only segmented dsRNA viruses that can be manipulated by recombinant genetic techniques, making them an excellent model for the study of the molecular biology of viruses of this type.

The genes of the virus have been expressed from the cDNA copies of the genome in E. coli and the viral proteins are now being studied, in particular the viral RNA-directed RNA polymerase P2.

As a virologist Dr. Gottlieb is on the board of advisors at Creative Oxygen Labs helping the company with its formulation impact on airborne viruses and bacteria. He is a Ph.D. from the City University of New York, Hunter College.
