Fall 2015 news: The New Orleans Advocate, Fox8 WVUE, and WGNO ABC cover our research

This was a busy fall for Norton Lab! We received an NIH RO1 grant for testing the efficacy of new generation proteins, LTA and LTA1, as adjuvants. We were also in the midst of a clinical study in partnership with the LA CaTS Clinical Translational Unit (CTU) to see how well the flu vaccine was working the New Orleans community. In our LA CaTS study, we were particularly interested in how factors linked to increased inflammation – age, diabetes, HIV, diet, exercise – correlated with vaccine response. Below are links some of the media coverage we’ve received for these two projects.
