Description: The Dr. Norman P. Salzman Memorial Fund was established in 1999 to present the annual Norman P. Salzman Memorial Symposium and Award in Virology to an outstanding Postdoctoral Fellow, Research Fellow or Clinical Fellow working in the field of virology at the NIH, the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or Leidos community. The Symposium and Award are hosted by the FNIH and the NIH Virology Interest Group. The symposium highlights current research of eminent extramural and NIH intramural virologists.

The Fund was established by Dr. Salzman’s family, colleagues and friends to remember the legacy of this noted pioneer in molecular biology and respected member of the NIH research community. Dr. Salzman's career spanned 40 years in virology research and he was among the first to characterize viral mRNAs and to visualize replicating viral DNA. Dr. Salzman’s achievements in virology are paralleled by the recognition that his laboratory was a training ground for many young scientists, several of whom have gone went on to become important researchers on an international scale. This is the top annual virology meeting at the NIH, with renowned invited speakers and a competition among intramural NIH/CBER/Leidos postdocs, post-bac IRTAs, and graduate students for the prestigious Salzman Award.
