Date:5/5/2008

of avian influenza (H5N1) on poultry farms.

"This is an exciting time for vaccine research," said Susan J. Rehm, MD, medical director of NFID and co-chair of the conference. "We are improving vaccines that are already in our arsenal and making progress toward introducing new vaccines against emerging infectious diseases, as well as other public-health problems."

Dr. Merieux Award to Dr. Roger I. Glass

This year's conference will honor Roger I. Glass, MD, PhD, director of the Fogarty International Center at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), who will receive the Charles Merieux Award for his work on rotavirus vaccines in the developing world. Each year, rotavirus kills more than 500,000 children under the age of 5 in developing countries and hospitalizes more than 55,000 children in the United States.

Dr. Glass, who is also associate director of international research at the NIH, is an expert on the prevention of gastroenteritis from rotavirus, which infects the intestinal lining. Dr. Glass established a Viral Gastroenteritis Unit at CDC which has conducted epidemiologic and laboratory research and provided leadership for the national and global rotavirus program for more than 20 years. This group has trained researchers from around the world and provided the evidence base that led to the introduction of rotavirus vaccines into the U.S. childhood immunization program and to surveillance activities for rotavirus in more than 50 countries around the world. The goal of these ongoing efforts is the ultimate prevention of rotavirus disease among children worldwide through immunization.

The Merieux Award is named in honor of Dr. Charles Merieux, a French scientist and visionary who devoted his life to the prevention of infectious diseases through vaccines. He grew the laboratory founded by his father, turning it into one of the leading vaccine manufacturing companies in the world. The company is now known as sanofi pasteur.
