We are pleased to host Professor Dan Barouch, who will be presenting his talk, “Natural and Vaccine-Induced Immunity to COVID-19 in Rhesus Macaques.” Professor Dan Barouch is the director of the Center for Virology and Vaccine Research at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. His work is primarily focused on developing vaccines against infectious, oncologic, and degenerative diseases. His research cohort is a key member of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Collaboration for AIDS Vaccine Discovery (CAVD), the NIH Center for HIV/AIDS Vaccine Immunology and Immunogen Design (CHAVI-ID), and the Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT, and Harvard. Recently, Barouch’s lab developed a COVID-19 vaccine in collaboration with Janssen Pharmaceutical Cos., the pharmaceutical branch of Johnson & Johnson. On March 30th, the U.S. government and Johnson & Johnson announced that they will begin clinical trials in the fall as part of a joint $1 billion collaboration agreement.
