Since the early days of Kodak, Xerox, and Bausch & Lomb, Rochester-area innovators have been making astounding discoveries in optics and imaging. Researchers at the University of Rochester are beginning a major study that will add to the region's imaging expertise, while also advancing global understanding of how the body's immune system works.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded a five-year, $9 million Research Program Project Grant (PO1) to scientists in the School of Medicine and Dentistry to adapt and develop cutting-edge imaging techniques, allowing them to view the immune system while it is fighting infection and disease.

University of Rochester Medical Center researchers have won a $3 million grant to support influenza research. The award from the National Institutes of Health's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases is going to support ongoing research by New York Influenza Center of Excellence, a 7-year-old flu research center led by URMC scientists John Treanor M.D. and David Topham, Ph.D..
This award is an acknowledgement of the highly productive contributions our center has made to the overall understanding of how the immune response to flu is regulated,Treanor said.
