About the PNAS Member Editor
Name Moss, Bernard
Location National Institutes of Health
Primary Field Microbial Biology
 Election Citation
Moss is a consummate virologist, biochemist, and molecular biologist. He has isolated and characterized numerous enzymes from vaccinia virus particles; is a codiscoverer of mRNA capping; identified various vaccinia virus genes and sequenced their promoters; and shown how to use vaccinia virus DNA as an expression vector for foreign genes, particularly those that encode antigens of clinical importance.
 Research Interests
I continue to study the biology of poxviruses with particular interest in virus-host interactions, virus entry and virion assembly. In addition my laboratory is using poxvirus vectors to study immunity to SARS-CoV-2 in transgenic mouse models.
