NOSM Researchers Look Aboriginal Infections

A researcher at the Northern Ontario School of Medicine is making a name for herself.  

Dr. Marina Ulanova is leading a team trying to develop a vaccine for a bacterial infection that strikes mainly Aboriginal people in northwestern Ontario.  

She says the reseach is at the next stage with volunteers from First Nation communities

Ulanova says the research shows the school is carrying out its mandate to improve the health of people living in the north.
