This month, during World Immunization Week (April 24-30, 2017), we recognize immunizations as one of the world’s most important and effective health interventions, responsible for saving countless people of all ages from disease and death. The theme for 2017 World Immunization Week is #VaccinesWork.  Over the last 3 years, Ebola vaccine research has transitioned from lightly funded research in the public health arena to both biotech companies and large pharma.  New approaches to vaccine design have been brought to the mainstream allowing them to address other emerging and established infectious diseases. Remarkably, new vaccine designs for Ebola are already being applied to the Zika... Read More

King Tut and Genghis Khan died from malaria, as may up to half of the people who have ever lived.1 There were 212 million... Read More

That’s good news as we acknowledge another World TB Day—and another year dedicated to “Uniting to End TB”. Some of this anticipated growth can be attributed to the increase in funding partnerships enabling smoother international collaboration and cohesive approaches to research. By uniting to set goals for drug and diagnostics development—and redirecting efforts when certain avenues of research  do not provide the... Read More
