Dr. Paul Brett Awarded $1.7 million by DTRA
Dr. Paul Brett, associate professor of microbiology and immunology at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine, was recently awarded $1,728,535 by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) for his research involving biodefense and emerging infectious diseases. The award will cover a three-year study period.
According to Dr. Brett, the award will enable his lab to characterize the protective capacity of several promising vaccine candidates that they have developed for immunization against diseases caused by Burkholderia pseudomallei and Burkholderia mallei, the causative agents of melioidosis and glanders.
Dr. David Wood, professor and chair of the department of microbiology and immunology at the USA College of Medicine, will give a presentation at the 2014 International Conference of Biocontainment Facilities on April 10, 2014.
