Leveraging Rotavirus Networks

Program Description: To determine the performance characteristics of tacrolimus-based (TAC) genotyping in comparison to conventional genotyping assays to better assess the role of different enteric pathogens in diarrhea requiring hospitalization among children less than five years of age. The technology will advance the analysis of rotavirus vaccine effectiveness studies by revealing how often cases of rotavirus vaccine failure are actually infections due to other enteric pathogens.
