Researchers identify previous unknown mechanism of infection by herpes cytomegalovirus. Thoughts health innovators?

More than 60 percent of the world’s population is infected with a type of herpes virus called human cytomegalovirus. The virus replicates by commandeering the host cell’s metabolism but the details of this maneuver are unclear.  Now, researchers at…

Story
Introduction

Founder of healthinnovations and the health innovator community. Michelle Petersen has worked in the health and science industry for over 21 years which includes tenure in the NHS and Oxford University.  She has also worked closely with big pharma & academia on events to further both drug research and drug portfolios, helping to market and gather data for various disciplines. 

A medical journalist, Michelle Petersen is ranked in the top 10 percentile of global healthcare KOL’s worldwide.  She is the original founder of healthinnovations, a community, a brand and the first to break news in innovations in health, medical research and pharma.

Healthinnovations is the industry standard for innovation in healthcare and can be found on multiple platforms. 

The aim of Healthinnovations is to bring all sectors of health and ehealth together to further innovation. Whether it be mhealth, healthit, medicine, neuroscience or any other medical sector they can all hamper innovation and the evolution of science if they are not researched or left unimproved.

Healthinnovations is now an established part of the global medical community system of whitepaper validation and verification; a virtual research project highway reaching every corner of the globe.

Healthinnovations helping to further innovations in global Healthcare, to further innovation in all of us.
