A new study’s findings dispel the misconception that patients and providers are at high risk of catching COVID-19 at the dentist’s office.
COVID-19 has had a significant impact since the pandemic was declared by WHO in 2020, with over 3 million deaths and counting, Researchers and medical teams have been hard at work at developing strategies to control the spread of the infection, caused by SARS-COV-2 virus and treat affected patients.
By engineering a short chunk of protein, or peptide, that can prevent the attachment of human parainfluenza viruses to cells, researchers have improved a method in rodent models intended to help keep children healthy.
Biopreparedness Expert Gustavo Palacios, PhD, to Join Mount Sinai, Strengthening Research Collaborations with Department of Defense
Virologist Gustavo Palacios, PhD, is joining the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai from the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID), where he led the application and development of molecular epidemiology to advance the field of biopreparedness. Dr. Palacios will strengthen existing research collaborations between Icahn Mount Sinai and the United States Army-Department of Defense (DoD), laying a foundation for joint research initiatives to protect national and global public health.
