Researcher one of six in U.S. to get funding - Around the Arch
December 2010 Issue
Frederick D. Quinn, a world-renowned tuberculosis researcher based at the UGA College of Veterinary Medicine, will receive part of a $2.9 million award from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to support research projects that will help with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of TB. Quinn, who heads the college’s department of infectious diseases, will receive $742,498 over two years to develop a diagnostic test for latent tuberculosis. He also is a member of UGA’s faculty of infectious diseases. There are about 14 million active cases of TB worldwide, presenting the traditional clinical signs including chronic cough with blood-tinged sputum, fever, night sweats and weight loss. However, most TB infections are latent, meaning the person infected shows no overt clinical signs and is not aware of the infection until their immune system is compromised. For more on Quinn’s research, go to http://www.vet.uga.edu/ID/people/quinn.html.
