Vaccines for Chronic Diseases: Chronic Infectious Diseases

ChronicChronic infectious and non-infectious diseases are a major public health issue of the 21st century. In response, the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) has established an initiative on "Vaccines for Chronic Diseases" that will encompass research at all stages of vaccine development, from basic science and discovery research and preclinical development all the way to clinical trials.

Among the many targets included in this initiative are chronic infectious diseases caused by bacteria (such as tuberculosis), viruses (such as AIDS), and parasites (such as schistosomiasis).
