Malinauskas attends Oxford Nanopore Technologies Community Meeting

"The [meeting] was a tremendous opportunity for me to network and learn from other scientists in my field," said JENNA MALINAUSKAS (IDM). "I learned tips and tricks to sequencing during the hands on training portion, what resources are available to me as a researcher, and how to improve my science. The opportunity to become more involved in the scientific community will benefit me throughout my career and I'm excited to attend more conferences i... 

Widespread virus replication in alveoli drives acute respiratory distress syndrome in aerosolized H5N1 influenza infection of macaques

JOURNAL OF IMMUNOLOGY - Wonderlich, Swan, Bissel, Hartman, Carney, O'Malley, Obadan, Santos, Walker, Sturgeon, Frye, Maiello, Scanga, Bowling, Duangkhae, Wiley, Flynn, Wang, Cole, Reed, Barratt-Boyes establish a new nonhuman primate disease model for evaluation of vaccine and therapeutic approaches to prevent and treat infection with highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses.   

Novel assay reveals a large inducible replication competent HIV-1 reservoir in resting CD4+ T cells

NATURE MEDICINE - Gupta, Sanyal, Ratner, Ding, Zerbato, Giacobbi, Venkatachari, Patterson, Chargin, Chen, Mailliard, Rinaldo, and Sluis-Cremer found that the size of the inducible latent HIV-1 reservoir in aviremic subjects on ART is approximately 70-fold larger than previous estimates.   

Peripheral blood biomarkers of disease outcome in a monkey model of rift valley fever encephalitis.

JOURNAL OF VIROLOGY - Wonderlich, Caroline, McMillen, Walters, Reed, Barratt-Boyes, and Hartman conclude that African green monkeys are a novel and suitable model for studying the neuropathogenesis of Rift Valley Fever (RVF) and for testing vaccines and therapeutics against this important emerging viral disease for which we lack both an effective human vaccine and treatment. Encephalitis and neurological disease resulting from RVF lead to death ...
