Vaccine Center

We protect and restore human health through innovative vaccine research.

At the Vaccine Center, part of the Department of Medicine’s Division of Infectious Diseases and Immunology at NYU Langone Health, renowned experts in vaccine research merge basic science, clinical studies, and public health outreach to prevent the spread of disease.

Our inaugural director, Mark J. Mulligan, MD, has been an international leader in infectious disease research programs for more than three decades, and his pioneering work has profoundly advanced the field.

Using the latest technologies from fields such as epidemiology, immunology, and microbiology, we lead collaborative research projects designed to identify safe and effective vaccines for infectious illnesses including measles and influenza. We also develop vaccines for noninfectious conditions including cancers, autoimmune disorders, brain conditions, and chronic diseases.

Our goals reach beyond just discovering the next vaccine. We care deeply about protecting public health, and collaborate with communities to improve how we communicate information about vaccines. We aim to increase access to care and combat vaccine hesitancy in New York City and around the world.

As an international hub for cutting-edge research, we have the expertise and resources to prevent a public health emergency and realize the potential of vaccines.

Vaccine Center Education

On November 2, 2019, Dr. Mulligan and other nationally and internationally recognized leaders in infectious diseases will host a course titled Current Topics in Infectious Disease. This course will be offered through NYU Langone’s continuing medical education program and will cover a broad array of topics relevant to recent advances in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of infectious disease.

Registration is now open.

Also in November, Dr. Mulligan and other experts in vaccine research will lead a clinical vaccinology course hosted by the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID). This two-day course is open to NYU Langone fellows and faculty and will focus on new developments and best practices in the field.

Registration is now open.
