Research Interests

Dr. Lawrence’s research interests focus on the human immune response to viral infections and vaccines, the epidemiology of infections in solid organ and stem cell transplant recipients, and public health preparedness for pandemic influenza and bioterrorism events. Current and recently completed research projects involve comparative analyses of antibody responses to various smallpox vaccines (in collaboration with Drs. Sharon Frey and Robert Belshe at Saint Louis University), the epidemiology of influenza and pneumococcal disease in transplant patients, the effect of statins in influenza patient outcomes, vaccine and antiviral treatment clinical trials in immunocompromised patients, and the effect of using a ventilator triage protocol on critical care resource utilization during a severe influenza pandemic.
