Getting an infection in your gastrointestinal tract can be a painful ordeal. Dr. Mary K. Estes, Cullen endowed chair of human and molecular virology at Baylor College of Medicine, discussed noroviruses at the NIAID Chanock Memorial Lecture on Feb. 23 in Bldg. 50. 

She and her lab have developed new diagnostics and a promising virus-like particle vaccine for noroviruses—research that may help settle many people’s stomachs.
