Sabin Executive Vice President Dr. Ciro de Quadros will serve on the steering committee of a recently launched “Decade of Vaccines Collaboration.”

In this role, Dr. de Quadros will provide oversight for the development of an action plan that will increase the discovery, development and delivery of lifesaving vaccines to the most vulnerable populations over the next decade.

The collaboration—launched jointly between the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, World Health Organization, UNICEF, and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases—follows a call by Bill and Melinda Gates for the next ten years to be the “Decade of Vaccines.”
