Dr. Maria Salvato serves the GVN as Executive Secretary of the Scientific Leadership Board. She obtained her doctoral degree in 1977 at University of California, Berkeley and was the first to complete the sequence of the arenaviruses LCMV and Lassa fever virus, and to describe the new zinc-binding gene product of those viruses. As a member of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses she chaired the arenavirus committee from 2000 to 2009. She is currently a professor at the University of Maryland, conducting research on hemorrhagic fever and AIDS in animal models.
The Common Flu - or Bioterrorism?, 29 Aug 2002 [cached]
"The symptoms for both the common flu and biowarfare agents can be near identical," explains Dr. Maria Salvato, a researcher and professor at the Institute of Human Virology, a center of the University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute and affiliated with the University of Maryland School of Medicine.
At the IHV, Dr. Salvato's lab will expose blood cell cultures to five different viruses that cause flu-like symptoms (influenza, respiratory syncytial virus, parainfluenza virus, rhinovirus, and arenavirus) to determine which genes can discriminate between natural disease and biowarfare agents.
