Okinawa, Japan Dec 12-14
Ana and Denise were invited to present!
Ana: Host-microbe interactions between gut microbes and Vibrio cholerae
Denise: Improved human-derived models for measuring immune response to oral cholera vaccine antigens
In collaboration with the laboratories of Dr. Joseph Mougous and Guarav Bhardwaj!
We will be targeting enteric pathogens with designed peptides to block virulence! Check it out here
Congratulations to Dr. Denise Chac in the Ana Weil CERID Lab for her selection after a competitive competition to join the Pediatric Infectious Diseases T32 for her project Microbial-derived sphingolipid impact on mucosal immune responses to oral cholera vaccines.
