The Emory Alliance for Vaccine Epidemiology (EAVE) was founded in 2021 to advance high impact epidemiological research on vaccination with funding from the Robert Woodruff Foundation as well as the Epidemiology department at the Rollins School of Public Health. Located at Emory University and housed within the Rollins School of Public Health, in Atlanta, faculty hold national and international vaccine advisory roles and are recognized as global experts in epidemiological research related to vaccines. The group builds upon Emory’s reputation as a global leader in immunology, virology and clinical vaccinology and are a multidisciplinary team across Emory, including the Rollins School of Public Health epidemiologists, biostatisticians, bioinformaticians and global health researchers, the College of Arts and Sciences, evolutionary biologists, and computer scientists, and the School of Medicine immunologists and clinical epidemiologists. The community affiliated with EAVE provides a network of partners across the university, including the Emory Vaccine Center, as well as local, national, and global health collaborators and institutions.
Our vision is to reduce the burden of infectious diseases through the optimal use of vaccines.
Conduct quality science to improve uptake, understanding, and impact of vaccines.
Our work is guided by a commitment to collaboration, excellence, and community.
Work with Students:
Providing the best training for the next generation of leaders including graduate students, post-doctoral scientists and early career faculty is one of EAVE's key activities. EAVE accomplishes this by hosting seminars with leading experts, leading a student journal club, providing opportunities for students and faculty to present their work and receive feedback and review trainees' grant applications prior to submission. A future goal is to develop a doctoral fellowship program.
