Congratulations to Coleen Cunningham and Andrew Noymer who were recognized in the Orange County Register’s 125 most influential people for 2022!
Dr. Coleen Cunningham
Cunningham, the chair for the UCI Department of Pediatrics and senior vice president and pediatrician-in-chief for CHOC, leads national and international pediatric clinical trials in RSV vaccine studies for young children, one of which was recently published the Journal of Infectious Disease and studies of anti-HIV monoclonal antibodies administered to newborns born to women living with HIV. Anti-HIV monoclonal antibodies might provide a future option to prevent or treat HIV in young children.
The UC Irvine epidemiologist has been remarkably accurate at predicting the course of COVID-19 and has embraced the role of someone who can explain what’s happening to the public.
