You can find information regarding progress being made in the development of HIV vaccines at the NIH website at http://www.aids.gov/news-and-events/awareness-days/hiv-vaccine-awareness-day/.
TBRI will be hosting a Cell-E-Bration event on January 7, 2015 at 5pm in our library. Dr. Bradley will be providing an overview of what it is we do at TBRI and some insights into our recent discoveries.
Dr. Pierson will present an overview of his laboratories work on a number of viruses currently making their way into Florida. The title of his presentation is:
Arboviruses at your doorstep: Combating emerging mosquito-borne viral pathogens of Florida
Arboviruses are viruses transmitted via insect vectors, many of which cause serious disease in humans for which there are no specific therapies. In some notable cases, such as Yellow Fever virus, vaccines have been developed to blunt the impact of several arboviruses on global health. Recent years have brought three medically important arboviruses into the region, including West Nile virus. In his talk, Dr. Pierson will discuss the challenges of developing safe and effective vaccines for three mosquito-borne emerging viral pathogens with significant potential to impact public health in our area.
Please join us and enjoy a review of TBRI's Summer Student Research Program! We will be hearing from TBRI's own, Dr. Guy Bradley, SPC's Dr. Michelle Osovitz and students from SPC, Eckerd College, and Palm Harbor High School!
Informative and enlightening presentations are sure to provide updates on TBRI's ongoing research and how our summer student researchers have been enriched by their experience at TBRI. Click on the EVENTS page to RSVP.
