Welcome

Vaccine ResearchThe Louisiana Vaccine Center was established in 2007 through the post-Katrina Support Fund Initiative (PKSFI) of the Louisiana Board of Regents.

At the Louisiana Vaccine Center our mission is to focus existing interdisciplinary strengths in the basic and translational science of microbial pathogenesis, host immunity and vaccine research at three major Louisiana universities, LSUHSC-New Orleans, Tulane University Health Sciences Center and Xavier University of Louisiana, in order to establish a tower of strength in infectious disease research and development, providing a pathway for discoveries to be translated into new vaccines and therapies.

The goal of the Center is to promote research and development in the areas of vaccines, infectious diseases and immunology with appropriate infrastructure and training. We aim to attract and retain first class researchers and trainees to the region and to establish new commercial and biotechnology opportunities in Louisiana. In this way, the Center will provide a cornerstone for future regional enterprises that could ultimately consolidate vaccine research and development in the South.

LVC wins major grant from Economic Development Administration in partnership with NOBIC
