Dr. Katze is Professor of Microbiology at the University of Washington and Associate Director for Molecular Sciences and Core Staff Scientist at the Washington National Primate Research Center. He has studied virus-host interactions for 35 years and is an international leader in applying systems biology approaches to infectious disease research. He is an author of over 300 papers and reviews, the majority of which are related to the use of high-throughput and computational methods. He has received the Milstein Award from the International Society of Interferon and Cytokine Research, the Dozor Scholar Award from the Israeli Microbiology Society, and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology. Dr. Korth is a Senior Research Scientist in the Department of Microbiology at the University of Washington. He specializes in technical and medical writing and the effective communication of scientific concepts in grants, contracts, and the professional literature. He is a member of the American Medical Writers Association and holds a BA in psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, a BS in microbiology and BSMT in medical technology from the University of Montana, and a PhD in microbiology from the University of Washington. His research interests are in the use of systems biology approaches to study viral pathogenesis. Dr. Law is a Senior Research Scientist in the Department of Microbiology at the University of Washington. Her research interests are in the use of high-throughput and computational approaches to study virus-host interactions. She has managed several large programs that utilize different animal models, high-throughput technologies such as microarray and RNS-seq assays, and computational approaches to define the host response to a variety of viruses including influenza, SARS, MERS, and SIV. The overarching goal of these studies is to identify host targets for therapeutic interventions. She holds a BA in chemistry from the University of Colorado and a PhD in biochemistry from Washington State University. Neal Nathanson is emeritus Professor of Microbiology at the University of Pennsylvania. He has spent most of his 50-year career working on the pathogenesis of a wide variety of viral infections, using animal models to investigate the viral and host determinants of disease. He edited the prior two editions of Viral Pathogenesis.
