Bio

Dr. John Kriesel graduated from Lake Forest High School in 1980 and then cum laude from the University of Illinois in 1984. He went on to graduate from Washington University Medical School in 1988. He came to Utah that year and completed a residency in Internal Medicine in 1991, and then a fellowship in Infectious Diseases in 1994. Dr. Kriesel joined the faculty at the University of Utah School of Medicine in 1996 with a primary appointment in Internal Medicine and Infectious Diseases. He was promoted to Research Associate Professor in 2007. He is currently board certified in Internal Medicine and Infectious Diseases.

Dr. Kriesel's primary interests here are in translational and clinical reseach. His current research projects involve the genetics of human cold sores, possible viral triggers of multiple sclerosis, and strategies for the treatment of herpes simplex virus infections including vaccination and novel pharmaceuticals. He has authored 35 original scientific papers and book chapters, has 2 U.S. patents, 3 active research awards, and 18 completed research awards.

Dr. Kriesel's clinical responsibilities include infectious disease consultations at the VA and University Hospitals, internal medicine attending at the Salt Lake VA Hospital, HIV clinic at the University Hospital and the Utah State Prison, and attending at the Salt Lake City STD Clinic.
