Notes: Louis Fiore is the Executive Director of the Massachusetts Veterans Epidemiology Research and Information Center and of the Million Veteran Program (MVP). He is very interested in utilizing the genetic and electronic medical records system information from the MVP to provide a large independent confirmatory population to validate specific host cell genetic loci associated with herpes zoster, herpes zoster-associated pain, and postherpetic neuralgia identified in your analysis of data from the Shingles Prevention Study. The MVP should be ideally suited for this purpose, and Lou happy to collaborate on this important endeavor.
