Edward Jenner is well known for his development of an innovative vaccine for smallpox. The Edward Jenner Institute for Vaccine Research (EJIVR) follows in his footsteps as it conducts immunological research along two primary tracks. The first one involves "work on areas of immunology relevant to the development of all vaccines, including antigen presentation, immunological memory and autoimmunity. The second consists of work that focuses on specific diseases or targets where vaccines, or improved vaccines, are needed." The EJIVR website contains brief summary pages for its separate research groups in the following areas: Bioinformatics, Carbohydrate Immunology, Lung Immunology, Viral Immunology, Memory, and CD45. A link is also provided to a separate Bioinformatics Group website. In addition, the EJIVR site includes background information about the Institute, publications lists by research group, information about collaborations, and a Recruitment page that lists opportunities when available.
