New United States Postal Service stamp honors an American scientist
Date:5/7/2008

ale of the sanitarium to create a new research center devoted to the study of basic biological research.

Today, the internationally-renowned Trudeau Institute is home to world-class scientists and their highly-trained research teams, who all study some aspect of infection and immunity across a variety of different pathogens. Their studies focus not only on immune responses to major infectious diseases, such as influenza, but also on the role of the immune system in cancer, autoimmunity and aging.

Dr. David L. Woodland, president and director of the Trudeau Institute, is delighted with the news of the special-issue stamp and is proud that Dr. Trudeaus life and research are being recognized in such a distinguished manner. He is, furthermore, hopeful that the honor will serve to highlight the importance of medical research.

The Trudeau Institute continues its work towards the development of an improved vaccine for tuberculosis, a disease the World Health Organization (WHO) estimated to have killed 1.6 million people in 2005. With more than one third of the worlds population infected with TB bacilli, and the emergence of multi-drug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) and extensively drug-resistant TB (XDR-TB), more effective vaccines are urgently needed.

For 124 years now, in the relatively isolated environs of Saranac Lake, a humane and scientific enterprise is flourishing. Many seminal discoveries are attributed to Trudeau Institute scientists. Like Dr. Edward Trudeau, researchers at the Institute are committed to making breakthrough discoveries that lead to improved human health.
