The NIAID VTEUs have played a key role in the Institute’s effort to develop new and improved vaccines and therapies against infectious diseases for over four decades. They have conducted hundreds of clinical trials, many of which have contributed to vaccine licensure. An important strength of the VTEUs is their ability to enroll large numbers of volunteers into trials rapidly and vaccinate them in a safe, effective and quick manner. This rapid-response capability is especially important for testing vaccines designed to counteract emerging public health concerns, such as the ongoing pandemic of 2009 H1N1 influenza.
