Not Just a Cold. VCU Medicine Grand Rounds- Dr. De La Cruz, Viral Respiratory Pathogens and Transplant Recipients

Congratulations to Dr. Oveimar De La Cruz of the VCU Infectious Diseases Division on an excellent internal medicine grand rounds on respiratory viruses in transplant recipients.

The lecture was informative and entertaining and covered the impact of viral respiratory pathogens (Influenza, RSV, Parainfluenza etc) on inflammatory pathogenesis, bronchiloitis obliterans pneumonia, bacterial and fungal co-infections, graft dysfunction and mortality.

Expect a published, invited review article on the topic in the next 12 months.

Not just a cold.
