Pejman Soroosh is a Principal Scientist at Janssen Research and Development, San Diego. He received his Ph.D. in 2008 from Tohoku University, Japan. He performed postdoctoral work at La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology (LIAI) where he investigated the mechanism by which co-stimulatory molecules on T cells contribute to dysregulation of airway tolerance and development of asthma. In 2010 he joined the Immunology Department at Janssen R&D where he was involved in the drug discovery efforts as a project leader and responsible for direct scientific management of internal and external projects. In 2014 he co-founded Immunology Exploratory Science Lab (I-ExSL) within Immunology department to study innate immune responses at mucosal tissues. In 2016 he created Immunobiology Research Team (IRT) within Janssen R&D with a goal to identify unique immune metabolism targets influencing T cell/APC biology & determine pharmacologic tractability to promote immune tolerance for autoimmunity.
