Federal Research Projects

As our Principal Investigators will tell you, we are motivated by discovery. We find it inspiring to ask complex research questions and then determine the answer through scientific evidence.

Through our work, we help seek new treatments for diseases that affect the immune system. We aid the search for safer smallpox vaccinations for patients who have an increased risk of a serious and potentially fatal side effect. We identify unanswered questions regarding bacterial and fungal infections, explore effective options for treating sickle cell disease, and evaluate interventions to reduce the devastating effects of asthma on children living in our inner cities.
