Over 70 publications were added to Matas Faculty Publications in March. Stories that caught our eye this month include: cooking as preventive medicine with TU's culinary medicine program, the reemerging zoonotic infectious disease leptospirosis visits New Orleans, and a systematic review on "impermeable" dust mite covers (apparently they're not so impermeable).

Links, lists and a special award for most authors on a publication (95!), after the jump.
