A Message from our Director

Paul_Goepfert_photoAs director of the AVRC, I understand that the only way we will develop a vaccine to protect against infections such as HIV and influenza is for individuals such as yourself to become involved in the testing of these products. The vaccine products we test have all been shown to be safe in animals and in many cases humans as well. 

We have a highly dedicated and experienced group of physicians, nurses, and support staff whose primary goal is to oversee the health and safety of the vaccine participant.  With your help we can bring an end to diseases that have affected so many lives throughout the world.

Director, Alabama Vaccine Research Clinic
