Meningitis Vaccine Study
The Ploss lab has collaborated with Dr.Nicole Basta from the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology in a recent meningitis study at Princeton University.
From the article:
"The study, funded by the Program on U.S. Health Policy in the Center for Health and Wellbeing at the Wilson School, will evaluate for the first time the Bexsero vaccine’s performance in an outbreak setting. While the vaccine proved experimentally effective in vitro in a lab, the study will reveal how effective the vaccine proved to be for University students."
