“We’re  interested in learning why some people are more susceptible to dengue fever than  others,” said Dr. Ted Ross with the Vaccine and Gene Therapy Institute.

Dr.  Ross and his team of scientists is collaborating with the Martin County Health  Department, as they work on a vaccine.

“It looks like mosquitos are able to survive the winters here in Florida, they  are mild. Now, it looks like we’re going to have dengue entrenched in Florida,”  Dr. Ross added.
