Understanding Poor Vaccine Responses in Individuals With Weakened Immune Systems
Yale researchers have received a $12 million award from the NIH as part of the Human Immune Project Consortium to study vaccine responses in vulnerable groups, including patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) undergoing B cell depletion therapy, older adults including particularly vulnerable older residents of long-term care facilities, and certain individuals with sickle cell disease.
A group approach to growing as a principal investigator
Laboratory researchers may not have sufficient training in the skills needed to form and manage an independent laboratory when they make the transition to Principal Investigator. A group of Yale researchers, including Valentina Greco (SWIM) addressed these challenges using principles from organizational management to navigate the groups and cultural norms of the medical school.Source: Current Biology
