Influenza Basic and Clinical Research Studies

Salvatore, Glesby, Gulick, Kaner

Dr. Salvatore is involved in clinical and translational studies of influenza in  immunocompromised hosts. She is also conducting basic research studies on the use of integrase-defective lentiviral vectors for immunization and antibody delivery against influenza. The CCTU is a site for observational studies of influenza in outpatients conducted through the NIH-funded INSIGHT network and has participated in NIH-funded interventional trials of influenza in collaboration with Robert Kaner and David Berlin in the Division of Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine.
