Evaluation of Novel Vaccines for Old and New Diseases

10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m

Co-chaired by Hana Golding, CBER/FDA and Alan Sher, NIAID

Balcony C, Natcher Conference Center

Vaccines have been an extraordinarily efficient and cost-effective approach in the control of many infectious diseases, and remain of interest given public health problems posed by emerging and re-emerging pathogens. Historically, vaccine development has been a largely empiric exercise. Now, however, sophisticated understanding of immune mechanisms provides exciting new strategies for vaccine development. At the same time, new vaccine candidates present new challenges in how they will be evaluated. This session will highlight the fertile intersection on the NIH campus between outstanding basic immunology, assay development, and animal models that facilitate the introduction and evaluation of new vaccines.
