The Institute of Human Virology (IHV), part of the School of Medicine at University of Maryland, is the first center in the United States to combine the disciplines of basic science, epidemiology and clinical research in a concerted effort to speed the discovery of diagnostics and therapeutics for a wide variety of chronic and deadly viral and immune disorders — most notably HIV. The Institute also oversees significant patient care initiatives in both Baltimore and internationally. The delivery of clinical care by IHV faculty and staff is world-renowned for its innovation and efficacy.

The Institute of Human Virology (IHV) was co-founded and is directed by Robert C.

Though best known for his co-discovery of HIV, Gallo and his team pioneered the development of the HIV blood test, which enabled health care workers for the first time to screen for the AIDS virus - leading to a more rapid diagnosis while simultaneously protecting patients receiving blood transfusions. His research also helped physicians develop HIV therapies to prolong the lives of those infected with the virus.

THE OPPORTUNITY

The Director of Development for the Institute of Human Virology carries out fundraising efforts providing essential development support and partners with faculty on the discovery, cultivation, solicitation and stewardship of major gifts prospects and donors. The Director works along key IHV faculty and staff and manages and supports the work of an International Board of Advisors.
