Medicine Grand Rounds - New Incentives for Epidemic Vaccines: Lessons from Ebola

Dr. Hoyt discusses challenges in the development of vaccines for epidemic infections, and describes the approach of the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) which imbeds vaccine research in active epidemic outbreaks. CEPI works to identify priority pathogens to get in the vaccine development pipeline early, facilitate early access to grant funding, mitigate technical delays, and work with institutions to gain momentum prior to an outbreak. CEPI also identifies the need for business partnerships that maximize social benefit over profit, and explores creative solutions to overcome the misinformation and mistrust of vaccine distribution on the community level.
