The Balfour Lab is recruiting incoming sophomores to volunteer in its research lab. The lab is looking for individuals that are passionate about public health, virology, vaccine development, infectious disease and clinical research. Experience in clinical or research labs is preferred.
The research lab is dedicated to learning how the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) causes disease and developing a vaccine against it. Besides causing infectious mononucleosis (mono), EBV is also a causative agent of several forms of cancer. Additionally, new evidence is supporting the link that EBV plays a role in the pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis (MS).
