In the history of human existence, there are few technological advances that have had as much of a positive effect on our species as the development of vaccines. The truly amazing thing about vaccines is how cost effective they are when it comes to improving the human condition. A single intervention can give an individual lifelong immunity from or resistance to a variety of diseases, and the marginal cost of a vaccine dose after development is often ridiculously low. One of the great vaccine triumphs in human history was Dr. Albert B. Sabin’s development of the oral live virus polio vaccine. He was a scientist who “dedicated his entire professional career to the elimination of human suffering though his groundbreaking medical advances” and “waged a tireless campaign against poverty and ignorance throughout his lifetime.” In 1993 he passed away, and the Sabin Vaccine Institute was founded in his honor. It is a Washington, DC based non-profit organization that is “dedicated to reducing needless human suffering from vaccine preventable and neglected tropical diseases through prevention and treatment.”
Sabin Vaccine Institute does its work through three key programs: Sabin Vaccine Development, Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases, and Vaccine Advocacy and Education. These programs are complementary in that they all have the shared goal of “developing preventative measures for diseases that place burdens on the world’s poorest countries.” Those preventative measures may be in the form of new vaccines, or they may be in the form of education programs that promote vaccine use. Sabin Vaccine Institute’s mission may seem simple, and in many ways it is. Unfortunately, vaccination isn’t as simple as just poking people in the arm over and over again. If you’d like to join Sabin Vaccine Institute in their mission to end suffering across the world, then you should check out their Jobs page. Right now they have two jobs posted, and both seem suitable for new or recent grads: Resource Development Coordinator and International Vaccine Advocacy Program Coordinator. Both jobs look great.
