Pneumonia is less likely to be accurately diagnosed and more likely to lead to morbidity and mortality in older adults, those in intensive care and those with co-morbidities. The Bowdish lab studies how changes in the immune system of older adults and vulnerable populations predispose them to infection and aims to develop novel preventative and therapeutic strategies to reduce the burden of pneumonia.
