Left Background

Research at the Center for Immunization Research

CIR investigators primarily conduct Phase I and II clinical trials of new vaccine candidates in the U.S. and in less-developed countries. As detailed in our Milestones section, CIR investigators have been responsible for the initial evaluation of many novel vaccines, and have achieved international recognition for their work on respiratory virus vaccines, flavivirus vaccines, and enteric bacterial vaccines. Work conducted in the CIR research laboratories is an essential component of many of these trials. CIR clinical investigators also collaborate with basic scientists in the schools of Medicine and Public Health and outside the University on projects of mutual interest.
