The Vanderbilt Vaccine Center (VVC) is recognized as one of the leading vaccine centers in the world with broad expertise in basic and clinical discovery related to understanding and optimizing disease prevention through vaccination. At the interface of immunology andvirology , recent computational advances have allowed us to better understand the interactions between antibodies and antigen, to design immunogens capable of eliciting target antibody specificities, and to optimize antibodies as clinical products. Research efforts in the Georgiev laboratory aim to utilize the power of computation to increase our understanding of fundamental questions in immunology and virology and to develop novel ways of using this understanding to fight diseases. For the translational component of our research, we apply structure-based protein design approaches to the development of new vaccine and antibody product candidates against several viruses of biomedical interest.
