Since coming to the Center for Immunization Research in 2008, my interests are primarily in program development, implementation, and management of vaccines for flaviruses. By utilizing implementation strategies, I strive to align project execution with the mission, culture, and ethics of this institution, school, department, and center in a competent, transparent, and inclusive manner. At the Center for Immunization Research, we focus primarily on phase I and II clinical trials of vaccine candidates for many varying pathogens. I have been involved in various trials including vaccines against dengue virus, West Nile virus, influenza, respiratory syncytial virus, and malaria. In addition to serving as Program Manager of the Flavivirus Team, I also manage our Regulatory Compliance Team, which is responsible for communication with IRBs, FDA, and Study Sponsors. In 2002, I founded the Johns Hopkins Hospital Moore Clinic’s Pharmacotherapy Clinic where I continue to practice HIV care on a weekly basis.
