Dicer is essential for plant, Caenorhabditis elegans, and Drosophila antiviral responses because of its role in generating small interfering RNA (siRNA) from viral genomes. We show that because of impaired miRNA production, mice with a variant Dicer1 allele (Dicer1(d/d)) were more susceptible to vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) infection. We did not detect(More)
OBJECTIVES We developed and evaluated a novel National Institutes of Health-sponsored Research and Mentorship Program for African American and Hispanic medical students embedded within the international, multisite HIV Vaccine Trials Network, and explored its impact on scientific knowledge, acquired skills, and future career plans.

Since its discovery in 1993, the mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase p38 has attracted much attention for its role in a wide range of cellular processes, many of which involve the immune system. Although p38 has been heavily implicated in the function of all type immune cells, research has tended focus on its role in innate immunity. In this review we(More)
The p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway regulates multiple physiologic and pathologic processes, including cancer development. PRAK, a p38 substrate protein kinase, has previously been implicated in the suppression of skin carcinogenesis. In the current study, we show that PRAK deletion accelerates hematopoietic cancer development in a mouse(More)
