It is with great pleasure that we announce the appointment of Michael W. Marine, former U.S. Ambassador to the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, as the new chief executive officer of the Sabin Vaccine Institute.

Michael is not a stranger to us at Sabin, having joined the leadership team as senior vice president in December 2009 after serving on the Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases' Joint Action Committee for eight months. His appointment as CEO was unanimously approved by Sabin’s Board of Trustees on April 21, 2010.
