Vaccine Center Research

Researchers at NYU Langone’s Vaccine Center use state-of-the-art methods to tackle complex problems in vaccine research. Our basic science and clinical research studies are designed to produce innovative new vaccines and devise ways to make their delivery painless and effective.

Around the world, communities are devastated by influenza, tuberculosis, malaria, and HIV/AIDS, conditions that are resistant to many existing drugs and targeted vaccines. Our challenge is to find new ways to combat these diseases and to identify safe, broadly effective vaccines that can make a powerful difference in global health.

We also focus on developing novel vaccines for nonviral and nonmicrobial illnesses including Alzheimer’s disease, autoimmune diseases, opioid use disorder, cancers, and other chronic conditions.

Beyond vaccine development, we lead research projects to develop new diagnostics and predictive markers to help providers detect disease early and predict the effectiveness of inoculation.

Active Clinical Studies

The Vaccine Center has ongoing studies that support future vaccine trials and studies of the human immune system and infectious diseases. This research builds on prior studies of the human immune response to infections and offers deeper insight into the complexity of these responses. It also holds possibilities for the development of rapid responses to emerging infectious threats.
