  • Meet a Scientist: Colgate Examines Rotavirus Vaccine Efficacy in Non-U.S. Countries
    UVM Vaccine Testing Center researcher E. Ross Colgate, M.P.H., spent two years working in Bangladesh trying to understand why a rotavirus vaccine that prevents the majority of cases in the U.S. works only 40 to 60 percent of the time in Bangladeshi infants. Finding an answer could save hundreds of thousands of lives given rotavirus’ status as the leading cause of diarrhea in young children worldwide, among whom diarrhea is the second leading cause of death.
