Louise G. Chatlynne, PhD
Dr. Chatlynne helped set up the laboratories of Retrovirology Department at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research and designed the first usable ELISA test for HHV-8 antibodies. She worked for many years in industry working on viral reagents and doing in vitro antiviral testing. Instead of retiring, she is contributing her time to the HHV-6 Foundation to do literature research and to assist scientists in preparing their scientific findings for publication.
Tuan received his B.S. degree in Molecular Biology-Biochemistry from the University of California, Santa Barbara. During his time at UCSB, he performed research on mussels in the Marine Biotechnology Laboratory. Tuan has published a number of papers on HHV-6 including a meta-analysis on HHV6B reactivation and subsequent aGVHD, a review of HHV-6B in liver transplantation and a review of the role of HHV-6B infection on T cell reconstitution. Tuan currently attends Tulane Medical School.
Eva received a Bachelor of Science degree in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology with a minor in Swedish from the University of Washington in Seattle. She has also spent time testing recreational waters for the presence of antibiotic-resistant E. coli in and around Stockholm, Sweden, and through the Foundation, she has performed experiments to characterize the effects of heparin on HHV-6. Currently, Eva is preparing for medical school while training her wild mustang. Eva has published several review articles on HHV-6 and will attend medical school in the fall.
