  • Program Director, Global Virus Network
  • Faculty, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

Dr. Maggie L. Bartlett is Faculty at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH) and the new Program Director for GVN. As an undergraduate at the University of Nebraska-Omaha (UNO) she was selected as an Institutional Development Award Program (IDeA) Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) fellow which allowed her to gain research experience during her B.S. in Biotechnology. At UNO she developed and evaluated vaccines and therapeutics to the brain parasite, Toxoplasma gondii. She obtained her Ph.D. (Immunology, Pathology, and Infectious Diseases) through the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) and was the first Bioinformatics Research and Education Pipeline (BREP) fellow sent to train at USAMRIID in the Center for Genomic Sciences, where she studied how the bat and primate immune responses differ to filoviruses. She was a postdoctoral fellow at JHSPH with Dr. Diane Griffin where she worked on Sindbis virus, Measles virus, and SARS-CoV-2. Dr. Bartlett was the Virology and Systems Biology Division Chief supporting the Biological Defense Research Directorate's (BDRD) Navy Medical Research Command before her faculty appointment where she developed lateral flow assays, novel detection methods, and biomarkers of viral encephalitis. Her interests are focused through a systems biology lens on viral RNA persistence and post-viral syndromes.
