MARK RICHARD SCHLEISS, M.D. Office Address: University of Minnesota Pediatric Infectious Diseases 2001, 6th Street SE MTRF / LRB Minneapolis, MN 55455 (612) 624-1966 As a PI, I have been continuously funded since the early 1990s to study cytomegalovirus (CMV) biology and disease. My program has productively tested hypotheses about protection of the maternal-placental-fetal unit in the guinea pig model of congenital CMV infection. My laboratory studies several vaccine strategies, focused on both subunit vaccine testing and generation and testing of live, attenuated vaccines against CMV. I also direct a T32 training grant in pediatric infectious diseases, and am a co-Director of the Center for Infectious Diseases and Microbiology Translational Research at the UMN. EDUCATION B.S.
