Vaccine Public Policy

As the director of Texas Children's Center for Vaccine Development and the Dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine, Peter J. Hotez, M.D., Ph.D, spends quite a bit of time advocating for vaccines and vaccine research. 

Public policy and advocacy represent a key fourth component of the mission of the Baylor College of Medicine National School of Tropical Medicine. NSTM and its faculty have a distinguished track record of raising awareness about the importance of neglected tropical diseases both overseas and within the United States and have organized high profile conferences and panels, as well as helped to formulate public policy on Capitol Hill, in the UK Parliament, and in the Texas State Legislature. NSTM collaborates with key public policy organizations in Houston and in Texas including the Baylor Healthcare Policy Institute, James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy at Rice University, the Scowcroft Institute of International Affairs, Bush School of Government and Public Service, Texas A&M University, and The Academy of Medicine, Engineering, and Science of Texas.
