UConn MD/PhD Grad Participates In Pediatric COVID Vaccine Trial

UConn Health MD/PhD graduate Sonali Bracken and her family are participating in clinical trials to test the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccinations in pediatric populations. Sonali has enrolled her two children in the trial with hopes that study findings may allow children and their families to enjoy experiences they have missed over the last few years.

Sonali completed her studies in UConn Health’s Immunology Graduate Program and the School of Medicine in 2017. Following graduation, Sonali completed her residency training in Internal Medicine (Integrated Research Track) at Duke University Medical Center. She is currently a Clinical Fellow in the Division of Rheumatology and Immunology at Duke University Medical Center.
