The Duke Human Vaccine Institute (DHVI) has established a place of national and international leadership in the fight against major infectious diseases. DHVI plays an integral leadership role in the Global HIV/AIDS Vaccine Enterprise and is a pioneer in emerging infections and biodefense research. By focusing on the scientific “bottlenecks” for the development of HIV, TB, and other vaccines, DHVI investigators continue to make significant contributions to overcome global health challenges on behalf of society.
