Siyuan Ding, PhD is a recipient of the 2023 Michelson Prizes: Next Generation Grants for his proposal, “Immunogenicity and protective efficacy of rotavirus-ETEC dual vaccines.”

Dr. Ding’s work seeks to develop a combined vaccine for rotavirus and enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC), the leading viral and bacterial agents of diarrhea in infants. With infectious diarrhea a leading cause of death among children, killing more each day than AIDS, malaria, and measles combined, his research could have a profound impact on child mortality.
