April 2015 Discussion

“Vaccines: a look at their past and future” 

Tuesday, April 21
Bratten Room in Lower Gild Hall
7:30 PM

Please join the Scholars Gild as we welcome Dr. Laurence C. Eisenlohr of Thomas Jefferson University, to our April 21 discussion of vaccines, their past history and future promise.
Vaccines have made an enormous contribution to the field of disease prevention since 1798 when Edward Jenner demonstrated that immunization with a poxvirus from cows protects individuals from smallpox. Through use of a very similar but essentially benign virus, this horrific disease was officially eradicated from the human population in 1977. In the second half of this century, vaccine developments have led to significant progress against several infectious diseases. These include Poliomyelitis, Measles, Rubella, Mumps, Cholera, Pertussis, Diphtheria, Tetanus, Rabies and Yellow fever. And finally, after over a century of trying, we are making headway with vaccines against cancers that are not attributable to an infectious organism. Progress in this area has been slower because the goal is much more difficult: focused attack against “self”. Headway can be attributed to a relatively recent shift from empirical to rational approaches in vaccine design. Dr. Eisenlohr will review these topics and attempt to give the audience a flavor for how his laboratory is contributing to even more informed and rational approaches to vaccine design.

Dr. Laurence C. Eisenlohr received his B.A. in 1979 from Haverford College, subsequently earning a Veterinary Medical Degree (1983) and a PhD in Immunology (1988) from the University of Pennsylvania. Following postdoctoral training at the National Institutes of Health, which ended in 1992, Dr. Eisenlohr became an independent investigator at Thomas Jefferson University where he is now Professor and Vice-Chair of Research in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology. He is also Co-Director and Head of Admissions for the MD/PhD dual degree program.

The Scholars Gild discussions are held at 7:30 PM on the third Tuesday of the month (except July and August) in the Bratten Room, lower Gild Hall.
