Suresh Tikoo received his B.V.S. AH (D.V.M.) and M.V.S. degrees in veterinary microbiology at G.B.Pant University, Uttarakhand, India, and Ph.D. degree in molecular virology at the University of Saskatchewan, SK, Canada. In 1993, he joined as a research scientist at Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization (VIDO), University of Saskatchewan. In 1996, he was appointed as the Head of the Virology Program at VIDO, where he worked on molecular characterization of DNA viruses with the aim of developing them as vaccine delivery vehicles. In 2001, he was promoted as a Senior Scientist and the Head of Vectored Vaccine Program at VIDO, where he continued to work on molecular characterization and development of nonhuman adenovirus-based vaccine delivery vehicles. In 2008, he was appointed as a Professor, Vaccinology and Immunotherapeutics Program at School of Public Health, University of Saskatchewan. His current research focus is on determining protein-protein interactions in nonhuman adenoviruses with the aim of developing improved vaccine delivery vehicles for animals and humans.
