UM SOM Researchers Awarded Grant to Use Innovative Alternative to Autopsies to Better Understand Child Mortality
Kathleen Neuzil, MD, MPH, director of the Center for Vaccine Development (CVD) at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UM SOM), and UM SOM Dean E. Albert Reece, MD, PhD, MBA, announced today that CVD has been awarded a large grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for research that will help determine why so many children under five are dying in the world’s poorest countries. The grant will fund use of an innovative alternative to traditional autopsy known as minimally invasive tissue sampling. The technique, which involves the collection of tissue samples with fine needles, allows researchers to quickly identify the cause of death, and help illuminate ways to save lives and improve the health of children in these vulnerable areas.
