Research at St George’s Vaccine Institute

The Vaccine Institute team research on new and existing vaccines to tackle diseases which disproportionately affect vulnerable populations including children, pregnant women and those living with HIV.

Sharing the same site with St George’s Hospital, one of the UK’s leading teaching hospitals, with more than 1000 beds, ensures that our research priorities address clinical priorities and that new knowledge generated by research is applied in the clinical setting in a timely manner.

Our team has strong ties with other clinical areas, such as paediatric respiratory medicine, infectious diseases, obstetrics, and with public health specialists who advise on key areas of research.

We work in close collaboration with the Centre for Neonatal Infection, with teams carrying out observational studies and randomised control trials on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) and antibiotic prescribing, as well as the Vaccinology team who lead studies on serocorrelates of protection in pregnant women in Uganda and the UK, and are working on the standardisation of the GBS antibody.
