Rolf Konig received an M.S. degree in zoology and a Ph.D. degree in biology from the University of Bern in Switzerland. He was a Visiting Fellow and Visiting Associate in the Laboratory of Biochemistry & Metabolism and the Laboratory of Immunology at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md, USA, form 1986 to 1993. He is currently Professor and Graduate Program Director in the Department of Microbiology & Immunology at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. His research is centered on understanding the mechanisms that regulate signal transduction, differentiation, and activation in T lymphocytes. He is also investigating systems biology (transcriptomics and proteomics) of inflammation and autoimmunity, especially following exposure to environmental toxicants. He has published multiple articles and several book chapters in these fields: mechanisms of immune modulation by xenobiotics (2011) and in “Encyclopedia of Environmental Health” (J. Nriagu, ed.), vol. 3, pp. 666-673.
