Members of Pekosz Lab Acknowledged by Dr. Anthony Fauci for their role in the COVID-19 pandemic response

Dr. Andrew Pekosz and Dr. Jaiprasath Sachithanandham were part of a group of Johns Hopkins researchers who received a letter this week from the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci. Dr. Fauci recognized their work in sequencing and isolating emerging SARS-CoV-2 variants alongside collaborators from the School of Medicine, especially Dr. Heba Mostafa.

This group also recently put out a paper in the Lancet’s eBioMedicine, “The Displacement of the SARS-CoV-2 variant Delta with Omicron: An investigation of hospital admissions and upper respiratory viral loads.” You can read it here.
