Sara Woodson, Program Officer, NIH/NIAID

Sara E. Woodson, PhD is virologist and expert in emerging and re-emerging viral diseases. She is currently a Team Lead & Program Officer for the Centers for Research in Emerging Infectious Diseases (CREID) Network program within the Translational Research Section of the Virology Branch in the Division of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases. Her programmatic responsibilities also include the World Reference Collection of Emerging Viruses and Arboviruses (WRCEVA), product development contracts, and a first-in-human clinical trial for a monoclonal antibody product. The CREID Network is conducting multidisciplinary research to better understand how and when viral pathogens emerge and spillover into humans while also being responsive to outbreak related research needs (inclusive of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic). Previously, she was responsible for the viral diagnostics, mosquito-borne flaviviruses, and product development programs in the Virology Branch, helping to advance over 30 antiviral and diagnostic products. Her scientific and professional interests are focused in emerging infectious diseases, pandemic/outbreak preparedness and response, biodefense, preclinical development of antiviral products, and biological sex influences on pathogenicity and host immune responses. In her spare time, she enjoys creating stained glass art and SCUBA diving
