Vaccines are one of the great success stories of modern medicine, having eradicated or controlled many severe infections of major global importance and improved the lives of millions. New strategies to tackle non-infectious diseases are also being developed to harness the power of vaccines in stimulating the immune system. However, numerous infections still cannot be prevented and major hurdles to developing effective vaccines against these still exist.
The objective of the Imperial Network for Vaccine Research is to tackle the most difficult questions facing the development and delivery of effective vaccines. Imperial researchers are at the forefront of every area relating to vaccine research, addressing knowledge gaps ranging from the extent to which particular infectious diseases affect people around the world; to the ways microbes interact with the human body; how to best stimulate immunity using novel technologies; and methods to accelerate the licensing and uptake of vaccines.
The multi-disciplinary Imperial Network in Vaccine Research is made up of world-leading experts, whose shared objective is to overcome the most challenging obstacles to effective vaccination. By harnessing cutting-edge technologies and collaborating across many disciplines we aim to better understand how protection can be induced and how vaccination can be delivered to people across the world.

This data is compiled using OpenSecrets bulk data downloads. LittleSis analysts match federal campaign contributions given by individuals in our database using the donation matching tool.
Individual profile pages show giving information for the individual profiled; org pages show an aggregate analysis of giving information for individuals with positions or memberships at those orgs. Note that this information may differ substantially from data found at InfluenceExplorer or OpenSecrets, because it only includes donations for individuals in our database who have been donor-matched by an analyst.
