She was a consultant to the World Health Organization from 2010 to 2016, was the keynote speaker for the launch of the Bioinformatics Program at Hood College in 2015, and currently serves as an advisor to the Bioinformatics Program and Biology Department at Hood College. Dr. Kearney is the recipient of three Bench-to-Beside Awards, three NIH Intramural AIDS Targeted Antiviral Program Awards, and a U.S.–South Africa Initiative U01 Grant.
