The Ohio State University Global One Health initiative (GOHi) has been awarded $5.61 million in funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to fight the COVID-19 pandemic and bolster Ethiopia’s public health system capacity for small- and large-scale disease outbreaks and emergencies.
The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM), in collaboration with Gigi’s, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of shelter dogs, recently launched the Gigi’s-Ohio State University Joint Parvovirus Research Initiative. A team from the College of Veterinary Medicine will work closely the veterinarians and staff at Gigi’s who provide direct patient care.
Novel family of peptides developed and validated against SARS-CoV-2 and HCoV-NL63
Novel live attenuated measles virus vectored vaccine candidates for SARS-CoV-2
College researchers identify a sensitive and specific neutralization assay for SARS CoV-2 associated with COVID-19 patients.
By figuring out how a common virus hides from the immune system, scientists have identified a potential vaccine to prevent sometimes deadly respiratory infections in humans.
A vaccine for the common and sometimes deadly RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) has been elusive, but scientists say a new discovery puts them much closer to success. The study provides a potential blueprint for finding the immunological sweet spot - a vaccine weak enough that it doesn't make people sick but strong enough that it prompts an ample immune response. "We now have a novel target to go after and are working with industry toward a vaccine," says the study's senior author Jianrong Li of the Department of Veterinary Biosciences.
According to the World Health Organization, 36.7 million people were living with HIV in 2015 with 1.8 million of these being children. The research performed by the Wu lab team at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine could help identify new medication and treatment options for HIV-infected patients.
