Vaccine Research Center

A Leader in Research and Discovery

In 1927, visionary industrialist, businessman and philanthropist James N. Gamble, of Procter & Gamble, made a transformational gift to launch what we know today as The Gamble Vaccine Research Center, the world-renowned research program at Cincinnati Children’s.

Along the way, other generous supporters such as Judge Alfred K. Nippert made remarkable investments to grow and solidify the program as a prestigious leader of research and discovery. Because of Gamble’s vision, and ongoing support from donors and friends of Cincinnati Children’s, The Gamble Vaccine Research Center is making a difference in the lives of kids from around the world.

Dedicated to Finding Vaccines and Treatments for Infectious Diseases

As one of nine Vaccine and Treatment Evaluation Units (VTEUs), we are dedicated to finding improved vaccines and better treatments for infectious diseases. We do this through:

  • Development and evaluation of diagnostic assays, vaccines and antiviral drugs
  • Surveillance of viral and bacterial diseases
  • Development of newer, improved vaccine delivery systems and adjuvants
  • Education about viral diseases, vaccine use and treatment status to lay, paramedical and medical communities
