Centers & Programs

The following centers and programs conduct research closely related to MMG's research and teaching topics.

Vermont Center for Immunobiology and Infectious Disease

The Vermont Center for Immunobiology and Infectious Diseases (VCIID) was created in 2006 with a five-year $11.4 million Phase I Center for Biological Research Excellence (COBRE) grant from the National Institutes of Health and National Institute of General Medical Sciences. VCIID combines the expertise of the UVM groups in Immunobiology, Microbiology, Infectious Diseases, and the Vaccine Testing Center to promote collaborative studies into the immune response to infectious agents, including viruses, bacteria and parasites, as well as studies of microbial pathogenesis and autoimmune disorders.

Vermont Lung Center

The Vermont Lung Center (VLC), a Program on Lung Biology and Disease, has been in existence at the Robert Larner, M.D. College of Medicine at the University of Vermont since 1972. It has had a rich and productive past that has had a significant impact nationally. The current program centers around a COBRE award from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) of the NIH. The keystone to the VLC program is translational research. The goals of the VLC are to investigate the mechanisms of lung biology and disease, and to train and retain outstanding translational scientists at UVM. Learn more about the Vermont Lung Center.

The Vaccine Testing Center

Faculty researchers at the Vaccine Testing Center (VTC) of the University of Vermont and the Robert Larner, M.D. College of Medicine, study human vaccines with the goal of understanding and preventing infectious diseases around the globe. Our team is particularly interested in new vaccines with the potential to prevent or control infectious diseases in developing countries. We are a diverse team of clinicians, study coordinators, scientists, and laboratory personnel. Volunteers are critical to our work and our human research studies are designed and performed with rigorous oversight and safety. Visit the Vaccine Testing Center website.
