CD4 T cell responses to Chlamydia infection

Dr. Stephen J. McSorley received a four year grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, NIH.  The CDC estimates that Chlamydia is one of the most prevalent bacterial infections in the US and causes upper reproductive tract pathology in a growing number of otherwise health young  women. Unfortunately, women with untreated Chlamydia infection can develop serious pelvic  inflammatory disease (PID), infertility, chronic pelvic pain, or suffer from ectopic pregnancy.
