More than 95 million infections each year are caused by non-typhoidal Salmonella spread through contaminated food and water. Despite the prevalence of these infections, there are no FDA-approved vaccines to combat non-typhoidal Salmonella infections in humans.
Join Lisa Emerson, MSPH, a PhD student in the Department of Microbiology and Cell Science at the University of Florida, for a discussion on a promising vaccine strategy that takes advantage of antigen-containing extracellular vesicles produced by Salmonella-infected immune cells. Preliminary studies suggest that these vesicles could be used to boost immunity against Salmonella infection.
