Grant Awarded to Dr. Xiaoping Zhu by MPowering the State
The Department of Veterinary Medicine would like to congratulate its own Dr. Xiaoping Zhu and Dr. Marcela Pasetti of the University of Maryland, Baltimore’s School of Medicine on their recent grant awarded by MPowering the State.
MPowering the State is a strategic partnership between the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD) and the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) designed to expand research collaborations, business development, and student opportunities at both institutions. Dr. Zhu’s individual research concentrates primarily on virology, pathology, and immunology. At UMB, Dr. Pasetti focuses on the evaluation and characterization of vaccine-induced immune responses in children. Together, with this grant, Dr. Zhu and Dr. Pasetti will study new strategies for vaccinating children against whooping cough.
