Adrian Hill, PhD will offer this talk as part of the Global Health & Infectious Disease Visiting Speaker Series.
Adrian V.S. Hill, PhD, is professor of Human Genetics and director of the Jenner Institute at Oxford University. He leads research programmes in both the genetics of susceptibility to tropical infectious diseases and in vaccine development.
In 2005 he was appointed director of the Jenner Institute, an initiative aimed at accelerating public sector vaccine development for a variety of infectious diseases, spanning human and veterinary vaccinology. The Jenner Institute links those developing vaccines for humans at Oxford University with veterinary vaccine developers at The Pirbright Institute and the Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency (AHVLA). He currently chairs the Clinical Biomanufacturing Facility and the Centre for Clinical Vaccinology and Tropical Medicine in Oxford, where new vaccines are in Phase 1 trials for malaria, tuberculosis, pandemic influenza, meningitis, HCV and HIV.
