Dr. Mary Kearney received her Ph.D. in Biology at Catholic University in 2007 under the direction of Drs. John Coffin, Sarah Palmer, and Venigalla Rao. She received The Benedict T. DeCicco Award for Excellence in Graduate Research in 2008. In 2001 she joined the HIV Drug Resistance Program (renamed as the HIV Dynamics and Replication Program in 2015) as a Biologist in the Virology Core. In 2008 she was promoted to Head of the Translational Research Unit (TRU) where she oversees a team that investigates HIV genetics and expression in vivo, the sources of persistent viremia during antiretroviral therapy (ART), the sources of rebound viremia after stopping ART, the mechanisms for maintaining the HIV reservoir, and the mechanisms for the emergence of HIV drug resistance mutations. Dr. Kearney was awarded the NIH Director’s Award and NCI Group Award in 2012, the NCI Director's Award in 2015, and the CCR Group Award in 2016. She was a consultant to the World Health Organization from 2010 to 2016, was the keynote speaker for the launch of the Bioinformatics Program at Hood College in 2015, and currently serves as an advisor to the Bioinformatics Program and Biology Department at Hood College. Dr. Kearney is the recipient of three Bench-to-Beside Awards, three NIH Intramural AIDS Targeted Antiviral Program Awards, and a U.S.–South Africa Initiative U01 Grant. In 2018 she was elected as a Frederick representative of Women Science Advisors for the NCI.
