Brief biography. Dr. Jarosinski came to UIUC in August of 2016. He grew up in Upstate/Western NY raising ornamental avian species and playing many sports. He received his BS in Biotechnology from the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in 1995 and his PhD in Microbiology from the State University of NY (SUNY) Health Science Center in Syracuse, NY (now Upstate Medical University) in 1999. After completing his PhD, he spent 12 years at Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in Dr. Karel A.

His research has focused mainly on Marek’s disease (MD) pathogenesis using chickens as a model for understanding how herpesviruses cause disease and transmit from host-to-host. When not in the lab, Dr. Jarosinski enjoys working outside in the Spring, Summer, and Fall and playing ice hockey in the Winter.
