Former Technical Advisory Group (TAG) members

MVI makes routine use of technical advisory groups (TAGs), which comprise external experts in malaria, vaccine development, immunology, industry, and clinical trial design and evaluation. TAGs may be convened at key points throughout the life cycle of a vaccine project, including prior to project initiation, in response to new or important data, and at the request of MVI’s internal Portfolio Management Committee.

The following list represents only the most recent TAG members. It is not a comprehensive list of MVI TAG members.
