Current Research Study
Neuroinvasive West Nile Virus (WNV) Infections
West Nile virus infection of the central nervous system (WNV-CNS) is a potentially life-threatening and/or debilitating illness. The neurobehavioral and functional consequences of WNV-CNS are incompletely understood. With support from a grant by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the SRH research team is engaged in a multi-year study that will provide much needed information about the long-term effects of WNV-CNS on the physical, cognitive, emotional, behavioral health, as well as the functional independence and quality of life, of persons with this condition. Findings from this study will be used to develop treatment strategies to improve long-term outcomes among persons with WNV-CNS.
