Personal profile

Personal profile

Division: Vaccinology

Dr. Bourne is a Professor in the Department of Pediatrics and Senior Scientist with the Sealy Center for Vaccine Development. He received his PhD from the University of Wales (Cardiff) Institute of Science and Technology. His research focus for over twenty years has been the development and evaluation of novel vaccines and therapeutics against viral infections with an emphasis on in vivo studies in appropriate small animal models. One of the principal areas of interest has been the development, refinement and use of mouse and guinea pig models of genital herpes disease to explore the impact of novel vaccines, antiviral agents and topical microbicides. In addition, for the past ten years he has worked extensively with small animal models of flavivirus diseases, in particular West Nile encephalitis, Japanese encephalitis and Dengue.
