$VXRT Don’t Stop Believin’ 15 In 2018, PATH, the Gates Foundation, and the Global Funders Consortium for Universal Influenza Vaccine Development convened a meeting of approximately 60 experts in London to identify best practices on how to improve the utility of a standardized controlled human influenza virus infection model (CHIVIM). Sean was invited, as was John Treanor, a former Vaxy exec. The other day @Sunwell found that David Wentworth also attended the meeting. Wentworth currently serves as Chief of the Influenza Division at the CDC. Received his Ph.D. at the University of Wisconsin (keeps popping up). Wentworth leads the Influenza Division’s efforts to improve global influenza virus control, prevention, pandemic preparedness and response. His goal is to engineer new vaccines against pathogens. Wentworth is important because he is the Vice Chair of the WHO Technical Advisory Group on COVID-19 Vaccine Composition. Does he know Sean?
