Date:4/11/2013

BALTIMORE, April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The University of Maryland (UM) BioPark announced today that the Global Virus Network (GVN) is the Park's newest tenant. The GVN is a non-profit organization comprised of the top medical virologists in more than 30 institutions spanning 21 nations – and growing.  GVN's mission is to combat emerging pandemic viral threats and current viral killers through international collaborative research, training the next generation of medical virologists, education and advocacy. 

Said Jim Hughes , President, Research Park Corporation , University of Maryland Baltimore, "It's exciting for the UM BioPark to include the prestigious Global Virus Network as one of our tenants. We are also pleased to be able to offer GVN continued close proximity to its Scientific Director, Co-Founder, and world-renowned virus researcher Dr. Robert Gallo from the UM School of Medicine, whose Institute of Human Virology is located conveniently just down the street from the GVN's new BioPark headquarters." 

GVN will support its scientists through small grants to allow new lines of research to move forward. To ensure that medical virologists are in place to address future, yet unimagined viral challenges, GVN provides training fellowships for tomorrow's leaders. GVN scientists share ideas and information to avoid duplicative research. And, in outbreak situations, GVN experts stand ready to provide critical insights on any of the 40 classes of viruses causing human disease to assist with containment and prevention measures.

"Moving to the UM BioPark is a great step forward for the Global Virus Network team as we graduate from our incubator space within the Institute of Human Virology (IHV) at the UM School of
