Student Testimonial

"The classes I took for the Vaccine Science and Policy certificate program increased my knowledge of various aspects of vaccine development, from basic vaccine science and history to policymaking decisions on licensed vaccines. This certificate better prepared me to take a more technical role in my first job after graduating with the PATH Malaria Vaccine Initiative. Not only were the professors and course content of high quality, but the guest speakers were exceptional and provided the students with a better understanding of the field experiences.
