Forbes:  The Human Vaccines Project, where I serve as president and CEO, has a mission to decode the human immune system to help scientists understand how it fights disease. The information will then be used to accelerate the development of better vaccines and immunotherapies that will save millions of lives. Imagine if we could harness the power of the human immune system to not only tackle major infectious pandemics like influenza, but also prevent and control chronic diseases like cancer, allergies, heart disease and potentially even Alzheimer’s. Until recently, attempting to understand the human immune system was sheer fantasy due to its vast size and complexity. However, technological advances have provided the tools necessary to undertake this unprecedented effort, allowing us to inch closer to transforming the future of human health. We knew we wouldn’t be able to accomplish this alone, so the organization has assembled leading academic research centers, industrial partners, nonprofits and governments to address the primary barriers and work towards a common goal of decoding the immune system.
