University of Pittsburgh
In college, Dr. Reed majored in Microbiology, obtaining both a Bachelor of Science degree in 1987 and a Master of Science degree in 1990 from Oklahoma State University. In 1995 he graduated from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas with a Ph.D. in Immunology. From 1995 to 1999 Dr. Reed worked in the laboratory of Dr. Leo Lefrancois and Dr. Lynn Puddington at the University of Connecticut Health Center in Farmington, CT. Under their tutelage, Dr. Reed gained expertise in studying T lymphocyte responses to antigens entering through the intestinal mucosa and respiratory tissues. In 1999, Dr. Reed moved to the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases where he served as a Microbiologist developing animal models and testing vaccines against a number of pathogens, including anthrax, plague, Venezuelan equine encephalitisvirus , Eastern equine encephalitis virus, as well as the Ebola and Marburg viruses. Along with his collaborators, he was awarded the 2003 Army Research Development Award for the successful design and testing of new vaccines for Venezuelan equine encephalitis viruses in nonhuman primates, work that was instrumental in initiating phase I clinical trials of these vaccines. In 2008 Dr. Reed became the manager of the Aerobiology core at the University of Pittsburgh’s Regional Biocontainment Laboratory. In that role, Dr. Reed develops animal models for respiratory and biodefense pathogens and tests medical countermeasures designed to protect against those pathogens.
His current research interests include developing animal models for aerosol exposure to Rift Valley Fever virus and testing and developing safe & protective live vaccines against pneumonic tularemia in rabbit and nonhuman primates.
