Academic Honors

Virology Honor—Margaret Kielian, Ph.D., gave the keynote lecture at the 18th Annual Norman P. Salzman Memorial Symposium at the National Institutes of Health on November 17, 2016. Considered to be the premier virology symposium, the meeting honors Dr. Norman P. Salzman, a pioneer in molecular virology. The symposium spotlights current research of eminent virology researchers. Dr. Kielian’s talk, “New Twists on Enveloped Entry and Exit,” highlighted two topics of interest in her lab: rubella virus entry and membrane fusion, and how alphaviruses remodel the cellular cytoskeleton to promote viral infection. Both have led to peer-reviewed publications in respected virology journals in the past year. Dr. Kielian is professor of cell biology and the Samuel H. Golding Chair in Microbiology.
