Edward A. Berger, PhDBerger is chief of the Molecular Structure Section in the laboratory of viral diseases in NIAID and NIH.Berger's lab identified the first HIV co-receptor, a molecule that Dr. Berger and his colleagues dubbed "fusin."They showed that fusin must be present on the surface of CD4+ T cells in order for HIV to enter and infect these cells.Soon thereafter, Berger's group and others showed that other HIV strains use different co-receptors to gain entry into target cells.

Edward Berger, Ph.D., of NIAID - for his outstanding achievements, groundbreaking discoveries and innovative and original scientific contributions that have advanced AIDS research.
Dr. Berger published a landmark paper using a novel method to discover the first HIV coreceptor [cell surface protein HIV needs, in addition to its primary receptor, to connect to and infect immune cells] (fusin, renamed CXCR4), which directly led his and other groups to identify CCR5 as the other major coreceptor.

Edward Berger, PhD, Chief, Molecular Structure Section, Laboratory of Viral Diseases, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, NIH, Bethesda, Maryland, USA
His laboratory has had a long-standing interest in how enveloped viruses enter target cells. His group seeks to unravel the basic mechanisms of membrane fusion mediated by the interactions of viral envelope glycoprotein's with their target cell receptors, and to apply that knowledge to the development of novel strategies to treat and prevent virus infection. This work has expanded their studies to diverse enveloped viruses of significance into human health, including herpes viruses and flaviviruses.
