Dr. Alan Rein obtained his Ph.D. with Dr. Harry Rubin at the University of California at Berkeley and did postdoctoral research as an American Cancer Society Fellow under the direction of Dr. Sheldon Penman at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  Dr. Rein has been associated with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) since 1976 and served as Head of the Retroviral Genetics Section in the ABL-Basic Research Program from 1984 to 1999.  In 1999 he joined the HIV Drug Resistance Program (renamed as the HIV Dynamics and Replication Program in 2015) as Head of the Retrovirus Assembly Section and was appointed to the NCI Senior Biomedical Research Service.  Dr. Rein received the NIH Director's Award in 2012, and in 2014 he was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology.  His research has dealt with a number of aspects of the biology and molecular biology of murine and human retroviruses, including virus assembly and maturation, viral envelope function, translational suppression, and pathogenesis.  In 2011 he received a two-year Breast Cancer Research Program grant from the Avon Foundation for Women to support a collaborative project on "Testing for MMTV and Related Retroviruses in Breast Cancer" with Edward Gabrielson, M.D., at Johns Hopkins Medical Institution.  In 2012 Dr. Rein was awarded a three-year Program Grant from the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) to support his international collaboration with Bogdan Dragnea, Dmitri Svergun, and Paul Van der Schoot on "Physical Principles in the Self-Assembly of Immature HIV-1 Particles."  Dr. Rein was an Organizer of the 1995 Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Meeting on Retroviruses and the 2001 International Retroviral Nucleocapsid Symposium.  He currently serves on the Editorial Boards of Virology, Journal of Virology, and the Journal of Biological Chemistry and is a collaborative member of the HIV Interaction and Viral Evolution (HIVE) Center, a consortium of leaders in the field of HIV research who are applying their structural and functional knowledge of drug resistance evolution to the design of more effective anti-HIV treatments.
