This entire site is a wealth of information, there were a few gaps I wanted to fill in and I just started replying in a few spots. There are many subject matter experts on here and I love learning from them. Figured interacting was the best way to speed up the process, plus if I get something wrong I can learn something new.
My civilian background is in medical research using animal models, not pharmaceutical evil stuff, university and NIH backed studies that work to change genes using CRISPR and retroviruses in living animals to stop diseases like CF and epilepsy from expressing. We also have studies blocking receptors with new medications that will starve out viruses from reproducing like HIV. My job is regulatory, biosafety and bio containment etc.
I’ve been in the National Guard for 12 years as a medic and have been an instructor, training and certifying them for 5 years. I’m transitioning to become a medical officer, I have not decided whether I’m going the PA or MD route but will most likely become a physician assistant and continue teaching and move to healthcare on the civilian side. Whatever the army will pay for once I reach that moment.
My undergrad is in the health sciences, it’s basically a generic pre masters in health sciences or pre med degree. I’m working on a masters in informatics, analytics and epidemiology. MPH degrees are too common and the more data focused healthcare ones are MS programs.
Not that any of that really matters, I’m just a name on the internet. I’ve met people with PhDs who were morons and others with no degree who were remarkable. Experience and credentials don’t always equate to knowledge.
I’m doing all of this for my family, mostly my son who has epilepsy that is slowly turning his midbrain into scar tissue making him more prone to having medication resistant seizures, surgery could destroy his limbic system and memory, aspects that make us human and I want to learn as much as possible to help him.

Pretty sure N95 masks are primarily for those who are already sick, reduces the area/range from sneezing and coughing.
just a heads up.
I work with these all the time,practically useless against particles this size.

Medical question for medical types...
Will individuals currently fighting another variety of flu have more or less resistance to this particular CV?
