The Brett Lindenbach Virology Fund will support an endowed lecture and training that honors Brett’s contributions to virology at Yale and beyond. In order for the fund to be sustainable, our goal is to raise $100,000 by October 1st, 2024. We hope you will join us to create this lasting legacy to celebrate Brett Lindenbach.

Scientists have found that cells that line human lungs and other tissues express a protein that can halt SARS-CoV-2 replication before the virus spreads to nearby cells. Their discovery could one day point to new therapeutic strategies to treat or prevent COVID-19, particularly for individuals who are more vulnerable to severe infection.

As more tick and mosquito-borne illness cases crop up in the U.S., researchers at Yale School of Medicine are looking to make a vaccine that will target those diseases. Most vaccines available to us usually target a pathogen or microbe, but there are many infectious diseases that are transmitted by vectors.

A group of Yale researchers is working on a new kind of vaccine they believe could change the world: instead of acting against a pathogen, the vaccine would reduce the risk of transmission for mosquito-and-tick-borne illnesses by targeting the insects themselves.

Why complete a fellowship in infectious diseases? How long is an infectious diseases fellowship? What is the best infectious diseases fellowship program? Upon completion of a residency program, many physicians may pursue a fellowship program to develop expertise in a medical subspecialty of their choice. For those who are interested in areas such as vector-borne disease, microbial pathogenesis, global health, HIV, public health, transplant infectious diseases, or hospital epidemiology and want to become an infectious diseases doctor, the next step is to complete additional training in infectious diseases.
