Scientists Launch Vaccine Research Foundation
Date:6/8/2011

rd Director, Prof. Willem Hanekom of the South African TB Vaccine Initiative at the University of Cape Town. "We also have an emerging problem of extensively drug-resistant TB. We urgently need to prevent these diseases through effective vaccination. Vaccine development is hampered by inadequate resources; which, in turn, results from suboptimal advocacy efforts. The Foundation has a critical role in reversing this situation."

"The search for an HIV-1 vaccine is the holy grail. Breakthroughs will come, but not from tweaking a variable this way or that," said Founding Board Director Prof. Simon Wain-Hobson of the Institut Pasteur. "We need new ideas – which take time to come – and fresher minds. We must nurture our post-docs and ensure that they have the resources they need. Good ideas could come from any quarter, even from outside the field."

"Now is the time when revolutionary, unconventional ideas driven by young investigators may lead to game-changing discoveries that may provide the key elements required for vaccine design against HIV and other intractable diseases," said Founding Board Director Dr. Galit Alter, an early-career investigator at the Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard. "We have renewed energy and momentum following some encouraging recent clinical trial results but we must have the resources to build on these advances."

"Vaccines have saved millions of human lives, more than any other medical intervention," said Founding Board Director Prof. Gregory Poland of the Mayo Clinic and Editor-in-Chief of the journal, VACCINE. "With a sustained 2- to 3-fold increase in funding for vaccine research, I believe that we can eliminate infectious diseases as the primary cause of morbidity and mortality from the planet within our children's lifetime."
