Daniel Rotrosen, M.D., is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases’ Division of Allergy, Immunology and Transplantation (DAIT), one of the three extramural program divisions of the institute (NIAID). Under his leadership, DAIT has promoted basic and clinical research to understand the human immune system and test novel approaches to treat and prevent immune-mediated diseases.

For more than a decade, DAIT has established and provided direction for various grant and contract research programs that align well with the goals of the Human Vaccines Project. These include NIAID programs focused on epitope discovery and characterization, adjuvant discovery and early-stage development, and deconvolution of the innate and adaptive immune response to infectious agents and vaccines.
