Center for Vaccine Development and Global Health (CVD)

Overview

Our faculty and staff are experts in the field of global health and vaccinology, and they are dedicated to improving global health by conducting innovative, world-leading research in Baltimore and around the world. Our key mission is to harness the power of vaccines to prevent disease and save lives in the most vulnerable populations.

Our research, surveillance and vaccine development focuses on four key areas: Enteric Diseases, Malaria, Influenza and Respiratory Diseases, and Emerging Pathogens.

For over 40 years, our researchers in the Center for Vaccine Development and Global Health (CVD) at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) in Baltimore, MD have worked domestically and internationally to develop, test, and deploy vaccines to aid the world’s underserved populations.

The CVD is an academic enterprise engaged in the full range of infectious disease intervention from basic laboratory research through vaccine development, pre-clinical and clinical evaluation, large-scale pre-licensure field studies, and post-licensure assessments.

Training is a critical component of our work to ensure the foundation for the next generation of scientists and researchers committed to global health initiatives.
