Can the recycling of influenza viruses explain changes in phenotypes of CHD cases?

I proposed that the 1950s-60s CHD deaths were associated with H1-H2 Influenza A re-infectiosn of H3 Influenza primed individuals (born around 1890). After 1968, when the H3 influenza virus returned, high serum cholesterol CHD cases declined and a second atherogenic phenotype emerged (H3 re-infection of H1-primed cohorts born after 1900 and more after 1918?). Would CHD mortality with high serum cholesterol levels increase... more »

Could the Precision Medicine Initiative Determine Who is at Risk for Preventable Infectious Diseases?

We will obtain a one-time blood measurement of immunity to preventable infectious diseases, such as measles, mumps, and human papillomavirus in people who have been vaccinated. This will help identify people who do not respond strongly to certain vaccines, to identify at-risk populations for infectious diseases and HPV-associated cancers. The goal is to develop targeted vaccination and prevention strategies for infectious... more »

AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

What is the populaton burden of fetal loss attributable to enviornmental exposures (alone or in mixtures)?

Characterize maternal and paternal individual exposure to environmental chemicals and metals using questionnaire data and environmental chemicals (as well as GIS for airborne and water exposures). Track fetal loss in different population strata. Determine the risk of fetal loss associated with single exposures and exposure mixtures, and then the population burden of fetal loss attributable to environmental exposures.... more »
