Dr. Galit Alter is a professor of medicine at the Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT, and Harvard. Her research is focused on the development of systems biology tools to define the correlates of immunity against infectious diseases that ravage the globe. Her work points to unexpected mechanisms of protection against HIV, malaria, and tuberculosis, has led to the development of novel diagnostics to monitor chronic infections/diseases, and now promises to accelerate the development of novel classes of therapeutics able to deploy the activity of the innate immune system in a specific and controlled manner.

Vaccines were traditionally designed to mimic host immunity to infections. Increasingly, vaccines are needed that improve upon natural immunity. This session will highlight a more rational approach—inclusive of systems biology and "-omics" research—to the design and evaluation of the next generation of vaccines. Join us for this exciting panel discussion around the future of vaccinology.
