Preparing for the Next Pandemic

Combating COVID-19 and Other Infectious Diseases

The Center is dedicated to vaccine research, immunology, and the study of the development of novel diseases. By leveraging strengths in basic and translational research, the Center provides a forum for important discoveries that are shared across the world, delivering powerful tools in the battle against infectious disease.

Philanthropy is vital in this endeavor. Your generosity will empower our team to build a backbone of genetic vectors that can be used to rapidly study and develop treatments for emerging viral pathogens. It will seed new pilot projects exploring how viruses emerge, mutate, and evolve. And it will fund fellowships and endowments that enable us to attract and retain the best and brightest in the field.
