Hope Clinic volunteer appeciation event

The Hope Clinic of the Emory Vaccine Center (Division of Infectious Diseases) hosted a volunteer appreciation event at the Fernbank Science Museum on November 21. Former and current volunteers who participated in Hope Clinic research studies and Hope Clinic staff and faculty were present at this event. Food, drinks, and IMAX were enjoyed by all.

The mission of the Hope Clinic is to conduct human research studies and clinical trials for infectious diseases of public health importance, e.g., HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, seasonal and pandemic influenza, diarrhea (Clostridium difficile, rotavirus, norovirus), Staphylococcus aureus, bioterror agents (anthrax, smallpox, tularemia), HPV, and others. The clinical studies encompass vaccines, treatments, prevention, community-based research, and laboratory-based translational human immunology.
