More than 95 million infections each year are caused by non-typhoidal Salmonella spread through contaminated food and water. Despite the prevalence of these infections, there are no FDA-approved vaccines to combat non-typhoidal Salmonella infections in humans.

Join Lisa Emerson, MSPH, a PhD student in the Department of Microbiology and Cell Science at the University of Florida, for a discussion on a promising vaccine strategy that takes advantage of antigen-containing extracellular vesicles produced by Salmonella-infected immune cells. Preliminary studies suggest that these vesicles could be used to boost immunity against Salmonella infection.


The CTSA Visiting Trainee Program brings clinical and translational trainees from across the CTSA Consortium to NC TraCS Institute for research seminars and virtual campus visits.
