Giving to the Emory Vaccine Center

  • turns bright ideas into pioneering studies by providing much needed seed money.
  • purchases costly, cutting-edge equipment, which grants do not cover and which are needed to facilitate research.
  • increases resources and reach for critical clinical trials and testing.
  • helps us create vaccines for:

Vaccines Save Lives

  • Approximately 1.5 million children will die from vaccine preventable diseases this year, and thousands more will be disabled.
  • AIDS has orphaned 15 million children living today.
  • Thanks to vaccines, smallpox was eradicated and polio is 99% eradicated.
  • The CDC calls immunization the most important public health act in history, after safe drinking water.
  • Hepatitis C affects 170 million people worldwide.

The Emory Vaccine Center is more than a vaccine center.

The EVC is an epicenter of academic research and development of vaccines against chronic and infectious diseases and the largest and most comprehensive academic vaccine research center in the world.

Thanks to vaccines, diseases such as polio, yellow fever, smallpox, and many others no longer threaten millions of lives. Experts at the Emory Vaccine Center are working to expand that list.

In addition to infectious diseases, we are working on vaccines and treatments for cancer,autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis, organ transplant, neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s, and more.  

In other words, the EVC team is conducting research that has the potential to save lives. And you have the potential to help.

As a not-for-profit organization, we rely on the private philanthropy of individuals, corporations,and foundations to continue our vital work. We hope you’ll consider lending support. We leverage private funding to receive large federal grants so that we can translate discoveries made into lives saved. On average, each private dollar the EVC receives is leveraged to acquire 17 additional research dollars in the form of prestigious federal grants.

Together, we can do wonders.
