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.”

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.
