Samuel L. Katz
Wilburt C. Davison Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Pediatrics
All of my current (and anticipated future) research is clinical investigation. I am no longer personally involved in laboratory research. The principle area of involvement until recently was clinical studies of HIV-infected infants and children. This came under the aegis of the NIH ACTG programs with studies of anti-retroviral agents and vaccines. The second area of research is in the clinical evaluation of viral vaccines (Hepatitis, Varicella-Zoster, Influenza, Respiratory Syncytial Virus, Human Papilloma viruses). My main focus currently is global vaccine studies and programs through participation in the Measles-Rubella Vaccine Initiative, and the International Vaccine Initiative (IVI). Nationally I am involved with the Centers for Disease Control through a number of their immunization programs.
