Clinical Trials

UTMB Clinical Trials Group

The Clinical Trials Group (CTG) is an integral component of the UTMB Sealy Center for Vaccine Development (SCVD). The role of the Clinical Trials Group is to perform human studies to address the safety and efficacy of vaccines and therapeutic agents.

Originally, the Clinical Trials Group was the Pediatric Trials Group. This group was moved into the Sealy Center for Vaccine Development by the first center director, Lawrence Stanberry, MD, PhD. Dr. Stanberry, who at the time was also the chairman of the Department of Pediatrics, envisioned the Pediatric Trials Group utilizing its expertise to grow to encompass all ages and to expand to other disciplines such as OB/GYN, Internal Medicine and Oncology. Much of his vision has come to pass.
