Children infected with #SARSCoV2 mount a rapid immune response that may limit the development of immune “memory”, supporting #COVID19 #vaccines for children -a 🧵⬇️ on our @ImmunityCP paper go.unimelb.edu.au/v4je @louiserowntree @KatherineKedz @CvandeSandt @TheDohertyInst (1/14)
We directly assessed ex vivo CD8+ T cell, CD4+ T cell, B cell and antibody responses towards SARS-CoV-2 using 7 tetramers and B cell probes in 53 #unvaccinated children and 47 adults from @TheDohertyInst, @MCRI_for_kids, @ChildrensLA, & @StJudeResearch (2/14)
68% of children in our cohort seroconverted at 1 month post COVID-19 infection/exposure which correlated with SARS-CoV-2-specific B cell memory. Thus, most but not all PCR+ children formed antibody responses following infection (3/14)

Today, I will try my hand at live tweeting insights from "A #Home of One's Own", a two-day #researchworkshop on socially & economically #marginalised women's experiences of and negotiations with #genderinequalities in #informalurbanhousing in India.
This workshop has been organised by #JadavpurUniversity (School of Women's Studies), #RabindraBharathiUniversity (Centre for Women's Studies) and #Parichiti, a women's organisation. All three are research partners on a #GCRF project funded by @GoldsmithsUoL.
Since Oct 2018, I have collaborated with Dr. Henrike Donner, who is leading it, to develop #researchcollaborations with #educational and #development organisations in India to implement a pilot study on #genderurbanhousing. This workshop marks the end of the first phase.
