Virology Interest Group

The Virology Interest Group comprises researchers at NIH and in the local area who are interested in virology. The group organizes activities designed to promote interactions and exchange of information.

The Interest Group has a Seminar Series (see Meetings) that meets  from 3:30 - 4:30 pm on the first Thursday of each month in Bethesda, Building 31, 11A01 and videocast to Frederick, Building 549, Conf. A.  This is organized by Drs. Nihal Altan-Bonnet (NHLBI)Eric Freed (NCI), and Joseph Ziegelbauer (NCI). Potential speakers should contact Drs. Freed and Ziegelbauer.  

The Virology Interest Group sponsors the Norman P. Salzman Memorial Award and Symposium in November of each year. The Symposium is held in conjunction with the presentation of the Annual Norman P. Salzman Memorial Award, which recognizes outstanding accomplishments by a post-doctoral fellow or research trainee at NIH working in the field of virology. The next Symposium is scheduled forThe 22nd Annual Norman P. Salzman Memorial Symposium in Basic and Clinical Virology, will be held virtually on Monday, November 9, 2020https://fnih.org/salzman-symposium. These awards honor the 40-year career of Dr. Norman P. Salzman in virology research and his accomplishments in mentoring of young scientists. 

Messages can be posted to members of the Virology Interest group through the NIH listserv, NIHVIG-L@LIST.NIH.GOV.

The organizers of the Virology Interest Group are Drs. Nihal Altan-Bonnet (NHLBI), Eric Freed (NCI), and Joseph Ziegelbauer (NCI)

These awards honor the 40-year career of Dr. Norman P. Salzman in virology research and his accomplishments in mentoring of young scientists. 

The Foundation for the National Institutes of Health, the NIH Virology Interest Group and the Salzman Organizing Committee announce the 22nd Annual Norman P. Salzman Memorial Awards and Symposium in Basic and Clinical Virology. These awards have been established to recognize outstanding research in the field of basic and/or clinical virology at the NIH, FDA, Fort Detrick Laboratories, LEIDOS, USDA or USUHS (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences). These awards honor the 40-year career of Dr. Norman P. Salzman in virology research and his accomplishments in mentoring of young scientists. Starting this year, two awards will be given: the first to a postdoctoral fellow and the second to a graduate student/postbaccalaureate trainee. The winning postdoctoral fellow will receive a plaque and an award of $2,500. The winning graduate student/postbaccalaureate trainee will receive a plaque and an award of $1,000. The mentors of the awardees will each receive a plaque. The winners will give talks during the symposium while selected other applicants will be invited to present posters.
 
The application due date for the Salzman Virology Awards is September 21, 2020. Application forms and information can be found at fnih.org/SalzmanSymposium. Applications must be submitted by email to SalzmanSymposium@mail.nih.gov.  
 
The awards will be presented at the 22nd Annual Norman P. Salzman Memorial Symposium in Basic and Clinical Virology, being held virtually on Monday, November 9, 2020. The award recipients will be expected to give a 20-minute presentation based on the award-winning abstracts.

Norman P. Salzman Memorial Symposium and

Awards in Basic and Clinical Virology

 

 

Dr. Norman P. SalzmanThe Dr. Norman P. Salzman Memorial Fund was established in 1999 to present the annual Norman P. Salzman Memorial Symposium and Awards in Basic and Clinical Virology to outstanding postdoctoral fellows, graduate students and postbaccalaureate trainees working in intramural laboratories at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Fort Detrick Laboratories, LEIDOS, United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) or Uniformed Services University of the Health Services (USUHS). The Symposium and Awards are hosted by the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH), the NIH Virology Interest Group and the Salzman Organizing Committee. The symposium highlights current research of eminent extramural and NIH intramural virologists.

The Fund was established by Dr. Salzman’s family, colleagues and friends to remember the legacy of this noted pioneer in molecular biology and respected member of the NIH research community. Dr. Salzman's career spanned 40 years in virology research and he was among the first to characterize viral mRNAs and to visualize replicating viral DNA. Dr. Salzman’s achievements in virology are paralleled by the recognition that his laboratory was a training ground for many young scientists, several of whom have gone on to become important researchers on an international scale.

The 22nd Annual Norman P. Salzman Memorial Awards and Symposium in Basic and Clinical Virology will take place virtually on Monday, November 9, 2020. 

This is the top annual virology meeting at the NIH, with renowned invited speakers and a competition for outstanding research in virology among intramural NIH/FDA/Fort Detrick Laboratories/LEIDOS/USDA/USUHS postdocs, graduate students and post-bac trainees for the prestigious Salzman Awards.

2020 Application is now open.

Application Deadline: Monday, September 21, 2020, 5:00 PM ET.

Matthias Lingemann

Dr. Matthias Lingemann, Ph.D., Laboratory of Infectious Diseases, NIAID

Dr. Lingemann received his BSc degree in Biology in 2011 from the University Wuerzburg in Germany and his MSc (2013) and PhD (2019) from the Technical University Braunschweig in Germany. He performed his MSc and PhD dissertation research under the supervision of Dr. Peter L. Collins through the NIH Graduate Partnership Program. Dr. Lingemann’s dissertation research focused on virus-host interactions of human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) during viral entry and developed live-attenuated HPIV-based vaccine candidates against Ebola virus.

During his graduate studies, Dr. Lingemann published 9 papers with 3 first-author publications. In addition, Dr. Lingemann is an inventor on an US patent application. After receiving his PhD degree in April 2019, he joined the Laboratory of Viral Diseases, NIAID, NIH to study Flaviviruses and to contribute to the development of Flavivirus vaccines.
