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.

TBRI Summer Undergraduate Research Program

by TBRI on 06/07/14

The TBRI Summer Undergraduate Research Program is off to a great start. For the last three weeks students from St. Petersburg College and Eckerd College have been evaluating molecules from the pine cone extract with the potential of being responsible for the extracts biological activity.  This already looks to be a very productive and learning intensive summer program.
