"Emory's strong basic and translational science programs within the Emory Vaccine Center and our infectious diseases programs in the Emory Children's Center, combined with our track record in clinical trials and infectious diseases treatment and research in adults and children, presented a very strong portfolio to the NIH," says Mark Mulligan, MD, principal investigator of the Emory VTEU, professor of medicine in Emory University School of Medicine and executive director of the Hope Clinic of the Emory Vaccine Center.

"We are excited to have this opportunity to make a major contribution to our nation's vaccine development efforts," says Harry Keyserling, MD, Emory professor of pediatrics and a co-director of the Emory VTEU. "Vaccines have always been our most effective weapons in battling diseases that broadly affect public health. We also look forward to working with our superb collaborators at CDC, KaiserPermanente Georgia, Mayo Clinic, and the University of Colorado."

The mission of the Emory VTEU:

  • To improve the lives of individuals globally through research into vaccines and preventive measures against infectious diseases.
  • To do this, we have recruited an outstanding group of clinical vaccinologists who work closely with government, industry, and academic leaders in the design and performance of clinical trials. Investigators within the Emory VTEU are engaged in understanding fundamental aspects of human immunologic responses to vaccines. The investigators, staff, and volunteers of the Emory VTEU are poised to make major contributions to the development of improved vaccines and preventive measures against infectious diseases.
