As the U.S. grapples with problems associated with vaccines – in terms of cost and avail-ability - North Carolina is poised to provide a solution. Dr. Steven B. Mizel, a professor of microbiology and immunology at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, is organizing the North Carolina Center for Vaccine Innovation, an initiative to bring new vaccines to market in a cost-conscious, efficient way. If his program is successful – and we predict it will be – it will turn a profit and will enhance our city’s standing as an innovative prime mover.
