Welcome to the influenza division of Herscu Laboratory, a 501(c)(3) non-profit multi-disciplinary medical research laboratory. This subsection of Herscu Laboratory is devoted to influenza, and specifically to the use and public health application of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) in influenza epidemics and pandemics.
We are involved in a number of different aspects of influenza research, public health programs, education, and clinical treatment tool development. This site serves both as repository for the resources and tools we have developed, as well as a source of current influenza news updates uniquely reflecting the ideas and tools we provide. Within this site there are hundreds of pages of work on influenza, spanning from 1991 to the present and covering aspects from treatment to biology to prevention, applicable everywhere from treatment of individuals to public health response in a pandemic situation.
In influenza, as in our other research areas, we are devoted to pursuing high quality research that bridges modern scientific and clinical disciplines and leads to real-world applications that can be applied on a broad scale. See the Current Research page for context on our current research efforts, where we are going from here, and what we have to offer during the current swine flu outbreak.
For more information on other avenues of research being carried out at Herscu Laboratory, and background and bios on our research faculty and partners, see our main pages at www.hersculaboratory.org.
