Rotavirus

study

Rotavirus causes diarrhea and vomiting in infants and children. The Rotavirus vaccine is given in infancy in the US and around the world. While the vaccine works well to provide protection from the virus in high-income countries, it does not work as well in middle to low income countries. Our research is looking into why this happens. 

Moms and Babies

Divinci

study

COVID-19 & Influenza are major public health problems and can cause severe complications in moms and infants. We are studying how the body responds to infections and vaccines. The main goal of this global study is to better understand and provide information to contribute towards more effective and longer lasting vaccines.

Mother Breastfeeding Baby

Flu breastfeeding

study

Breastfeeding helps to provide protection against respiratory and other infections.  We want to see how moms help protect infants through breast milk. We would like to learn if there are differences in immune levels in breast milk of mothers who received either the flu shot or the nasal spray flu vaccine and compare how both routes prevent flu in their infants.
