LSUHSC awarded NIH grant to develop pneumonia vaccine
Date:10/7/2011

rought nearly $17 million in federal funding to LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans. Dr. Shellito is collaborating with Dr. Jay Kolls, who holds faculty appointments at both LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans and the University of Pittsburgh.

"Lung infections remain an important problem for individuals infected with the HIV virus," notes Dr. Shellito. "Of these infections, one of the most severe is pneumonia caused by the fungal pathogen, Pneumocystis. This project seeks to develop a safe and effective vaccine not just to treat Pneumocystis pneumonia but to prevent it altogether. We believe that such a vaccine will lower the cost of treatment of HIV and improve the quality of life for individuals living with HIV."
