New vaccine center to open in India
The Emory Vaccine Center and the International Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology have joined forces to launch the Joint ICGEB-Emory Vaccine Center in New Delhi, India. The center will be dedicated to vaccine research focused on infectious diseases that disproportionately affect the developing world.
Emory will provide the funding to support scientific staff in the joint New Delhi center, and ICGEB will provide space and infrastructure. Both partners will contribute their scientific expertise in vaccine research and development.
“Together, we plan to develop new vaccines and help move them from the laboratory through complex testing, approval and manufacture to local health centers where they can benefit individuals with the greatest need,” says Rafi Ahmed, director of the Emory Vaccine Center.
