Meet the most influential people in the world. They are artists and activists, reformers and researchers, heads of state and captains of industry. Their ideas spark dialogue and dissent and sometimes even revolution. Welcome to this year's TIME 100

Nathan Wolfe runs the CIA of infectious disease. The swashbuckling virologist is the founder and director of the Global Viral Forecasting Initiative (GVFI), an innovative NGO that tracks emerging infectious diseases before they begin to kill humans.1)

Wife Lauren Gunderson

Wolfe’s wife, playwright Lauren Gunderson, wrote about his work and life in ‘The Catastrophist’. A play was staged in January 2021, albeit for a digital audience. In July 2021, The Jewish Theological Seminary (“JTS”) hosted a discussion about The Catastrophist with Gunderson, Wolfe, and others. “Although it is fictionalised and dramatised, as I am wont to do, it is based on the life and the work of Nathan Wolfe,” Gunderson said.2)

Who Is Virus Hunter Nathan Wolfe?

Daily Expose By Rhoda Wilson on April 13, 2022

Nathan Wolfe was a founding citizen of Ghislaine Maxwell’s TerraMar Project and a member of the Edge Foundation; a self-proclaimed “virus hunter” whose area of research is zoonotic diseases with a special focus on bats; with links to the Wuhan Institute of Virology and EcoHealth Alliance; who previously bungled epidemic responses while selling pandemic insurance; whose company Metabiota which is funded by Rosemont Seneca, Google, The Skoll Foundation, among others, was awarded a sub-contract with the US Military’s DTRA program for work in Ukrainian biolabs.

BioBiden Timeline

A few days before the end of March Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marija Zakharova published a timeline of US-Ukraine bioresearch headed “BioBiden.” Of the 23 timeline points she listed, Nathan Wolfe or organisations associated with him – Metabiota and Global Viral – were explicitly mentioned in 8 of them:

  • 2007 – US DoD employee Nathan Wolfe founded Global Viral Forecasting Institute (subsequently – Global Viral), a biomedical company. The mission stated in the charter is non-commercial study of transborder infections, including in China.
  • 2014 – Metabiota, a private commercial organisation specialising in the study of pandemic risks is detached from Global Viral. Neil Callahan and John DeLoche, employees of Hunter Biden’s company Rosemont Seneca Partners are appointed to the board of Metabiota. Global Viral and Metabiota begin to get funding from the US Department of Defence.
  • 2014 – Metabiota shows interest in Ukraine and invites Hunter Biden to “assert Ukraine’s cultural & economic independence from Russia”.
  • 2014 – Metabiota and Burisma Holdings begin cooperation on an unnamed “science project in Ukraine”.
  • 2014 – Metabiota, Global Viral and Black & Veatch Special Projects begin full-fledged cooperation within the US DoD programmes.
  • 2014-2016 – Implementation of Metabiota and US DoD contracts, including a $300,000 project in Ukraine.
  • 2016 – former US Assistant Secretary for Defence Andrew Weber is appointed head of Metabiota’s global partnerships department.
  • 2016 – EcoHealth Alliance, a Global Viral founder Nathan Wolfe’s structure, is engaged in the study of bat-transmitted coronaviruses at the research centre in a Wuhan laboratory, China.

Considering the accusation is US political elites’ involvement in the military biological activity in Ukraine, it perhaps indicates Moscow has identified Nathan Wolfe as a person of interest in what Zakharova termed “this truly diabolical plan.”

According to his DCP3 biography written for a 2018 publication3), he had received over US$60m in grants and contracts from, the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the US Department of Defence among others. If both biographies are accurate that would mean he received US$40 in the 5-year interval.

In 2008, what appears to be a shelf company called Epintel, with no directors, changed its name six months after initial filing to Global Viral Forecasting. In 2012 this company again changed its name, this time to Metabiota. 4)
