William Valiant (Fed)

Research Biologist

William received his PhD from the Uniformed Services University in 2019 with his dissertation work focused on the antibody response to Zika virus infection in macaques. This work identified that Zika virus induced antibodies were able to bind to Dengue virus and to cause enhancement of later Dengue virus infection.

At NIST, William is working to identify methods to detect adventitious viruses within pharmaceutical products using next generation sequencing technologies.
