Zeda Fran Rosenberg, Sc.D., microbiologist, epidemiologist and widely recognized expert in HIV biology and prevention, serves as the chief executive officer of the International Partnership for Microbicides (IPM).[1] IPM was founded by Dr. Rosenberg in 2002 and is a nonprofit organization dedicated to developing microbicides and other innovative HIV prevention products and making them available for women in developing countries.[2]

Dr. Rosenberg received her undergraduate degree (BA) in biology and mathematics from Douglass College, Rutgers University, and both her master's degree (SM) in epidemiology and her doctoral degree (ScD) in microbiology from the Harvard School of Public Health.

Dr. Rosenberg is widely regarded as a steadfast champion for developing new HIV prevention products, women’s empowerment and protecting women’s health.[3] Her opinions and commentary have been featured in a variety of international media, including New York Times,[4] The Globe and Mail (Canada),[5] The Daily Nation (Kenya),[6] Nature News[7] and the South African Medical Journal.[8] She has authored many scientific articles and has been a featured speaker at multiple high-level conferences and events, including the IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention,[9] the International AIDS Conference, Women Deliver,[10] and the United Nations General Assembly Special Session on HIV/AIDS.

Early career history[edit]

From 1999 to 2002 Dr. Rosenberg was the scientific director for the HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN) at Family Health International (FHI). In that role, she managed scientific and operational coordination of international clinical trials in the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV, sexual transmission and transmission of HIV through intravenous drug use.

From 1987 to 1999, Dr. Rosenberg worked in several capacities at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH). She was senior scientist in the Division of AIDS from 1995 to 1999. In that capacity, she directed HIV prevention clinical trials, providing leadership, planning, implementation, administration and evaluation of a global program of extramural research on the prevention of HIV transmission in adult populations.

Dr. Rosenberg also served as the assistant to the director and then assistant director for prevention research at NIAID from 1987 to 1995. In this position, she was responsible for all scientific research areas related to AIDS, functioning as a liaison and facilitating scientific exchange between intramural research laboratories and the office of the director. She also coordinated the NIAID Tuberculosis (TB) Research effort, representing NIH on the Public Health Service Task Force to Combat Multi-Drug Resistant TB and co-chairing the TB Research Subcommittee. In addition, she was responsible for coordinating other Institute disease-prevention activities, including in the areas of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.

At IPM[edit]

Dr. Rosenberg provides vision, leadership and direction to IPM, which has become a leading product development partnership in the HIV prevention field. Under Dr. Rosenberg’s leadership, IPM has entered into six non-exclusive, royalty-free licenses with five major pharmaceutical companiesBristol-Myers Squibb, Gilead Sciences, Merck & Co., Pfizer and Tibotec Pharmaceuticals (division of Johnson & Johnson) — to develop, manufacture and distribute eight antiretroviral (ARV) products as microbicides in developing countries.[11]

In 2011, IPM will initiate a Phase III clinical program to evaluate the dapivirine vaginal ring, an antiretroviral-based product that could potentially provide women with HIV protection for a month or longer.[12] The program will involve up to 6,000 women in many communities throughout sub-Saharan Africa, where the HIV/AIDS epidemic has hit hardest.[13]
