A massive public health effort eradicated smallpox but scientists are still studying the deadly virus
"Our best hope is for an effective vaccine to stop the COVID-19 pandemic, just as it stopped smallpox." Professor Emerita Pat Foster discusses smallpox and how it differs from COVID-19.
IU biologist recognized for "macroimmunology" paper; COVID-19 pandemic emphasizes importance of study
Postdoc Daniel Becker’s (Ketterson lab) award-winning paper on “macroimmunology” in Journal of Animal Ecology offers a guide to better understanding drivers of disease that may in turn lead to better prediction and management of pandemics.
Andrew Quest named Goldwater Scholar.
Organisms deal with unpredictable developmental environments thanks to environmental-responsive genomes. A landmark study of genome-wide gene expression in beetles by Postdoctoral Fellow Sofía Casasa and colleagues illuminates how these genomes evolve.
Assistant Professor Kimberly Rosvall has been chosen to receive IU's most prestigious campus-level award available specifically to pre-tenure faculty.
Instead of taking a “flu-like approach” to creating a new vaccine, Professor John Patton and his team are leveraging the lab’s ongoing work exploring rotavirus to develop a vaccine that will protect children against COVID-19.
