DHVI Investigator receives subaward to assess long term impact of radiation

Drs. Greg Sempowski and Andrew Macintyre received a subaward to a 7-year U01 grant (PI: M. Cline, Wake Forest Univ) to perform comprehensive immunophenotyping of non-human primate (NHP) blood samples annually to assess the long-term impact pf radiation (and age) on peripheral immune compartments and thymus function.  This is a new funding mechanism to continue the study of a cohort of about 200 long-term radiation survivor NHPs at the Wake Forest University.
