On this edition of UVa Today Bob Beard talks with Dr. Bill Petri.
Dr. Petri and 14 other University of Virginia doctors are working with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on a worldwide project to end infectious diseases.
The team of doctors are looking into why vaccines only work half as well in the developing world as they do here at home.
Dr. Petri is currently working to improve vaccines for Polio and Rotavirus, which would improve the lives of thousands in developing countries.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has supplied a grant to help the team of doctors in their work.
