New Researcher Dr. Oliver Harrison at the Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason Receives $2.9 Million NIH R01 Grant to Study How the Immune System Responds to the Microbiome

Principal Investigator Oliver Harrison, DPhil, at the Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason (BRI) has been awarded a $2.9 million-dollar 5-year Research Project Grant (R01) by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study the mechanisms by which the immune system responds to the body's microbiome, and how these immune responses go awry during inflammatory, immune-mediated and autoimmune disorders.
