OUR PARTNERS


We've built a global consortium with a singular goal

The Human Vaccines Project is a global nonprofit that brings together leading stakeholders across academia, industry, governments, and nonprofits. Under our consortium model, we have created a network of leading university and academic research centers that serve as our scientific hubs. These scientific hubs work collaboratively to develop and execute our scientific plan. The Human Vaccines Project also collaborates with leading governmental, academic, nonprofit, and industrial affiliates to generate ideas, share data, fund projects and advance key scientific goals.
