We welcome Dr Arash Saeidpour to the lab, who will be working on our MIDAS-funded project on measles and pertussis vaccination in the US.
In collaboration with Dr Shweta Bansal, we have received a 5-year grant to study vaccination and re-emergence of childhood diseases. We are looking to recruit two postdoctoral research associates for this project.
Pej has been elected to the executive committee of the NIH’s Models of Infectious Disease Agent Study (MIDAS) network for a two-year term. He will serve as chair in the coming year.
From July 1 2017 until June 30 2021, Pej will serve on the National Institutes of Health study section, IRAP (Infectious, Reproductive, Asthma and Pulmonary Conditions).
As part of a collaborative team, led by Dr Mark Tompkins, Pej received a grant to study the effects of the microbiome on the outcomes of respiratory infections. The project is funded by the UGA President’s Interdisciplinary Seed Grant Program.
The Rohani lab is hosting Dr Claudia Pia Ferreira (Sao Paulo State University, Brazil) and Dr Seyed Moghadas (York University, Canada).
