Even as a child, Peter Hotez held a grown-up's fascination for the tiny creatures living in the creek near his house.

Inspired by Paul de Kruif's Microbe Hunters, a popular book on disease detectives, Hotez persuaded his parents to buy him a microscope. He spent hours watching little animals wriggle in a glowing circle of light, and, at an age when most kids were reading The Hardy Boys, he read about parasites. His two brothers were baffled by his obsession.

President's Perspective

Welcome to the new website of the Sabin Vaccine Institute. Since its founding in 1993 our organization has been committed to reducing the suffering caused by preventable infectious and tropical diseases, and honoring the legacy of Dr. Albert B. Sabin, the discoverer of the oral polio vaccine as well as several other life-saving interventions.

Dr. Sabin once stated that “a scientist who is also a human being cannot rest while knowledge which might reduce suffering rests on the shelf.”

PLoS Article "Neglected Infections of Poverty in the United States of America" by Dr. Peter Hotez

In the United States, there is a largely hidden burden of diseases caused by a group of chronic and debilitating parasitic, bacterial, and congenital infections known as the neglected infections of poverty. Like their neglected tropical disease counterparts in developing countries, the neglected infections of poverty in the US disproportionately affect impoverished and under-represented minority populations.
