Progress Against Malaria and Other Infectious Diseases Among Highlights at Annual Vaccine Conference
Date:4/27/2009

1:30 a.m. luncheon on Monday, will discuss the need for scientists to become more effective communicators about vaccines. "It is incumbent on scientists to stand up for the science," he said. "No venue is too small." He urges scientists to reach out to ordinary citizens in venues ranging from PTA meetings to local high schools to explain the scientific method and discuss the safety of vaccines. "Science is wonderfully self-correcting," Dr. Offit said. "We are paying a price for standing back from the science that exonerates vaccines as a cause of chronic disorders like autism. Now, alarmingly, vaccine preventable diseases are starting to come back."

The Merieux Award is named for Dr. Charles Merieux, a French scientist and visionary who devoted his life to vaccines for the prevention of infectious disease. The company he developed from his father's laboratory eventually became sanofi pasteur, the world's largest vaccine maker. The Merieux Award is underwritten by an unrestricted educational grant from sanofi pasteur.
