Hu Group wins COVID Grant

The Hu group has won a large grant from the Chicago Biomedical Consortium

The Hu group in our department, working with Melody Swartz (UChicago), Evan Scott (Northwestern), and Jeffrey Hubbell (UChicago), has won a major grant from the Chicago Biomedical Consortium. Their proposal, "Novel Strategies for Enhancing Vaccine Efficacy Against SARS-CoV-2" will have the Hu group apply single-molecule imaging to gain mechanistic insight into antigen archiving, transfer to antigen-presenting cells and presentation. The UIC team will also develop a novel imaging assay to understand vaccine susceptibility to the genetic instability of the SARS-CoV-2.
