Dr James Crowe, Director of Vanderbilt Vaccine Center, Vanderbilt Vaccine Center

Dr. Crowe is Director of the Vanderbilt Vaccine Center and the Ann Scott Carell Professor of Pediatrics, Pathology, Microbiology and Immunology. His laboratory studies the human immune responses to infection or vaccination. His team has studied immunity to a wide variety of major human pathogens, including avian influenza, chikungunya virus, Ebola virus, Zika virus and others. His group is working to develop new methods in computational immunology for rational design of vaccines and antibodies. He is the Director of the Human Immunome Project, an ambitious effort to identify the sequence of all transcripts for adaptive immune receptors on the planet. He is an elected member of the National Academy of Medicine and has been the recipient of a number of major investigator awards for research.


DC Co-conference Day 2 April 4 @ 12:10

Principles of broad and potent antiviral human antibodies: Insights for vaccine design

  • Isolating and studying human antiviral mAbs and the basis for their activity
  • Understanding of the chemical and physical basis for molecular recognition of viral surface proteins
  • Building predictive molecular models that can be used for vaccine design
