Recently awarded NIH grants (Nacul, Fletcher, Nathanson, Friedberg)

Luis Nacul is at London School of Trop Med, where UK Biobank set up in last year or so.

Nathanson's genomic approach to biomarkers/mechanism was awarded from 2015-2018, so I'm wondering if he found something interesting enough to warrant an $100,000 supplement to his current study. I presume this to be the case since his description of the single year grant just awarded is identical to his long term studies description.

I find the Nacul Grant less interesting, although it may show if viral loads correlate with viral titers, which it is sometimes presumed to.
