The University of Louisville Center of Excellence for Research in Infectious Diseases was chosen as a site for the Meningococcal Carriage Study.

Meningitis is a bacterial disease that can be contracted at college or other communal settings. Although most people who have this bacterium are only carriers, in some cases it can be a serious condition or even fatal. This study aims to evaluate what percentage of college students are carriers of meningococcal bacteria which will help define the need for vaccination.
