Matt FrankCU Psychology and Neuroscience Senior Research Associate Matt Frank (Maier Watkins lab) was in the news, getting interviewed for an article in CU Boulder Today about some recently published research regarding the anti-inflammatory effects of a particular bacterium, M. vaccae. These anti-inflammatory effects, manifested in rats, led to reduced responses to stress compared to rats which had not received the bacterium. These results have implications for a potential stress vaccination in humans. Read the CU Boulder Today article, or the original Brain, Behavior, and Immunity paper.
