Dr. Kaiser Bijli PhD

Last week, Kaiser Bijli, PhD was highlighted for all the awesome work he is doing for the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Dr. Kaiser Bijli, a valuable member of his team, joined the Reagent and Diagnostic Services Branch (RDSB) in August of 2016 to help with the Zika outbreak response. Kaiser received his bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry and Master of Science degree in Biotechnology from Aligarh Muslim University in Aligarh, India. Then, he completed his Doctorate degree in Biomedical Science at the University of Delhi. He went on to do postdoctoral training at the University of Rochester Medical Center in New York. While there, Kaiser received a junior faculty position and was awarded a research grant from the American Heart Association. He moved to Atlanta to work on the grant project and accepted a faculty position in the Department of Medicine at Emory University.
His duties at CDC RDSB include testing and standardization of Trioplex tests and reagents for Zika diagnostics. He serves as lead on multiple projects including kits for ricin, polio, and other response related requests. Kaiser not only works hard but enjoys taking on new responsibilities. Coworkers say he’s a pleasure to be around.
Kaiser and his wife have two children, a son who’s a rising fifth grader and a daughter who enters Pre-K in the fall. Kaiser enjoys teaching math to his son and encouraging creative thinking when playing and building with toys such as Legos. Kaiser loves to read and enjoys watching documentaries on a myriad of topics, from aircraft and railroad manufacturing, to the extinction of the dinosaurs.
We are so proud of Dr. Bijli and all the good work he is doing with the CDC!
