When Tom Stratton was a college sophomore in 2004, his indie-rock band, Socratic, did a show in Los Angeles, and a record company offered them a contract that night. He left school, played drums and guitar on tour in Asia and Australia and throughout the U.S., recorded albums, and now – 10 years later – is still earning high praise for his work, though not as a musician. Tom Stratton has become a very talented biomedical scientist conducting top-level pharmaceutical research in a lab at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School.

Vitamin D appears not to be effective for treating repeat occurrences of bacterial vaginosis (BV), the most common reproductive infection among women worldwide. While earlier studies have shown a correlation between low vitamin D levels and BV, new research shows the difficult-to-treat and frequently symptom-free reproductive infection isn’t altered by high dose vitamin D supplements. The findings underscore the need to confirm findings from observational studies through randomized controlled trials. Effective treatments for recurrent BV are urgently needed, because BV can cause spontaneous abortions and increase the risk of contracting HIV.
