Mary A. Rodgers, Ph.D.

Areas of Expertise: Abbott Global Surveillance Program, virus hunting, infectious disease research and diagnostics.

As a senior scientist in Abbott’s diagnostics business, Mary Rodgers manages the Abbott Global Viral Surveillance Program and external collaborations for the infectious disease research division.

Abbott’s Global Surveillance Program was established two decades ago to detect and actively monitor emerging HIV and hepatitis strains around the world. By monitoring the diversity of current epidemics as well as the next public health threats, this program serves as the scientific foundation upon which Abbott’s diagnostic tests are built.

Mary received her Ph.D. in biological and biomedical sciences from Harvard University. She completed her postdoctoral training at the University of Southern California. Mary joined Abbott in 2014 and has since helped to complete the sequencing of 14 new divergent strains of HIV from the Congo basin using next generation technology. She also published a study describing more than 1,000 new viral sequences, including rare HIV Group N and O, HTLV-3, and recombinant hepatitis B virus strains from Cameroon.

Mary is a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Society of Microbiology.
