Vaccinating the World
Texas Children’s Hospital Center for Vaccine Development (Texas Children’s CVD) is one of the leading vaccine development centers in the world. Based at the Texas Medical Center - the world’s largest medical center – in Houston and in partnership with Baylor College of Medicine, Texas Children’s CVD develops new vaccines for global health. For the past two decades, it has acquired an international reputation as a non-profit Product Development Partnership (PDP), advancing vaccines for poverty-related neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) and emerging infectious diseases of pandemic importance. In addition, it builds and strengthens capacity for vaccine research & development locally and with foreign nations and leads global efforts to guide and influence vaccine policy and advocacy through “vaccine diplomacy” as an international bridge for peace and vaccine reliance.
Texas Children’s CVD has led and revolutionized national and international efforts in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic. With more than a decade of coronavirus research & development experience, the Texas Children’s COVID-19 vaccine was designed specifically to make a significant impact in the global fight against COVID-19. The expectation is that it will become one of the most accessible COVID-19 vaccines technologies available, allowing for many low- and middle-income countries to produce a safe, effective vaccine at large scales, sufficient for their populations in need. The ability to expedite production and deliver massive quantities of COVID-19 vaccines addresses an urgent need in halting the global pandemic.
