“While she will tell you that she is not a scientist, she is way better at explaining complex areas of biomedical and clinical science than many of us who do this everyday. I am a member of Nikki’s scientific board because of my work with Chlamydia pneumoniae, and have published on its involvement in asthma causation and exacerbation. Nikki has helped me to expand my focus recently to Alzheimer’s Disease and arthritis, since intracellular infectious microorganisms have been implicated in their etiology. Her collaborative corralling of scientists boasts a national and international reach, as she brings people to the table to think outside of the box and find meaningful solutions to complex problems.”
Intracell serves as a vital link between the physicians and researchers studying the correlation between intracellular infection and Alzheimer’s. We are breaking down the silos in research across the globe to enhance communication and foster innovation.
Our Board of experts works together to educate other healthcare providers and researchers, raise awareness on the role of chronic intracellular infection in various diseases, and identify sources of funding for critical research.
If you look at the peer-reviewed publications on this site, a trend emerges. While there are other important organisms, both bacteria and viruses, Chlamydia pneumoniae has a unique skill-set. It is incredibly well-studied, prevalent, hard to kill, and has the ability to elicit widespread inflammation.
