Maciek Boni Influenza

Congratulations to Stacy Todd on passing her PhD viva today!


At OUCRU Vietnam for 2.5 years, Stacy ran a large observational study on influenza antibody profiles in flu-positive and flu-negative patients.   Stacy examined the relationships between these profiles and influenza susceptibility, computed antibody waning rates for patients recently infected with influenza, and determined how these waning rates influenced estimates in traditional seroepidemiological study designs.

Stacy’s thesis was titled Influenza in Vietnam: cross immunity from prior infection and its effect on population-level estimates of infection.
