The Yale Center for Methods in Implementation and Prevention Science and the National Institute of Public Health of Mexico Partner to Launch an Implementation Science Summer Course for Health Professionals

The Yale School of Public Health’s (YSPH) Center for Methods in Implementation and Prevention Science (CMIPS) and the National Institute of Public Health of Mexico (INSP) formalized collaboration back in 2019 with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that was the culmination of a long-standing, productive working relationship between INSP and Drs. Donna Spiegelman, the Director of CMIPS, and Rafael Pérez-Escamilla, the Director of the Maternal and Child Health Promotion program within CMIPS.

  • Chromosomal changes in white blood cells increase risk of severe infections

    With age comes an increased risk of many infections. The mechanisms connecting aging and weakened immunity, however, have remained unclear. A new study has identified a category of genetic markers in white blood cells which makes individuals more susceptible to diverse infections. The study, conducted by a team of researchers from Yale, the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT, and the National Cancer Institute (NCI), was published June 7 in the journal Nature Medicine. As people age, genetic errors begin to accumulate during the process of cell division. For the study, researchers explored whether one category of these emerging genetic variants in white blood cells — called mosaic chromosomal alterations, or mCAs — played a role in increased infection risk.
