UTMB named a World Health Organization Collaborating Center for Vaccine Research
Date:8/15/2014

ases and the regulatory hurdles and processes you have to go through to get product approval even in the case of urgent, unmet needs," said UTMB's David Beasley, associate professor of microbiology and immunology and associate director of the UTMB WHO Collaborating Center for Vaccine Research.

UTMB is the only academic institution in the United States with a fully operational biosafety level four containment facility the Galveston National Laboratory where research on the world's most deadly pathogens can be conducted under the strictest safety practices and procedures.

WHO Collaborating Centers support WHO to investigate public health issues from many angles, ranging from basic science and animal studies to clinical trials, public policy, training and funding.

"UTMB is uniquely positioned as an academic center to sit between the regulating agencies and the public health agencies," said Alan Barrett, director of the UTMB Sealy Center for Vaccine Development and director of the UTMB WHO Collaborating Center for Vaccine Research. "We bring our perspective as scientists to the table at these global discussions where critical policies and processes to address emerging infectious disease threats are formulated."

UTMB's responsibilities will be to track and provide analysis of the vaccine pipeline against emerging infectious diseases, to conduct research on the development, evaluation and use of vaccines against emerging infectious diseases of public health importance, and to provide education and training for future investigators in the field of vaccinology.
