Dr. Eric Freed received his Ph.D. in 1990 in the laboratories of Drs. Rex Risser and Howard Temin at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and did postdoctoral work with Dr. Temin at UW-Madison in 1991.  His work in Madison focused on the function of the murine leukemia virus and HIV envelope glycoproteins in membrane fusion and virus entry.  He joined the Laboratory of Molecular Microbiology at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (LMM/NIAID) in 1992, where he worked with Dr. Malcolm Martin on a variety of topics relating to virus assembly and entry/post-entry events in the HIV replication cycle.  In 1997 he was appointed as a Tenure-Track Investigator in LMM/NIAID, and he was promoted to a tenured Senior Investigator position in 2002.  Dr. Freed joined the HIV Drug Resistance Program in 2003.  He was an organizer of the 2004 Cold Spring Harbor Retroviruses conference, 2006 ASCB Cell Biology of Retroviruses conference, 2012 Keystone Conference "Frontiers in HIV Pathogenesis, Therapy and Eradication," and 2014 Keystone Conference "Viral Entry, Assembly, Exit and Spread."  In 2009 he was appointed as the first Editor-in-Chief of Viruses; he also currently serves on the Editorial Boards of Journal of Virology, Open Virology Journal, Retrovirology, Advances in Virology, Frontiers in Virology, and Journal of Molecular Biology.  He was selected as an NCI Mentor of Merit in 2010 for excellence in mentoring and guiding the careers of trainees in cancer research, and in 2011 he was appointed to the NCI Senior Biomedical Research Service.  In 2014 Dr. Freed was appointed as the Deputy Director of the HIV Drug Resistance Program and received the 2014 Outstanding Science Alumni Award from Penn State University.  He is currently serving as Co-chair of the NIH Virology Interest Group and Co-chair of the NIH Earl Stadtman Virology Search Committee and is a member of the NIH AIDS Discovery and Development of Therapeutics study section.  He also currently serves as an adjunct Professor in the Department of Cell Biology and Molecular Genetics at the University of Maryland, College Park and is the Co-director of the University of Maryland Virology Program.
