Summary: Dr. Peter Andersen is Vice President of Vaccine Research and Development at Statens Serum Institut (SSI). The WGND had the opportunity to talk with Dr. Andersen on a recent article entitled “A multistage tuberculosis vaccine that confers efficient protection before and after exposure” that we covered in a previous TB R&D Weekly Update. The article is published in Nature Medicine in February 2011. In the interview, Dr. Andersen provides an overview of his present research and the article, possible integration of a vaccine that protects pre- and post- exposure into TB treatment, and the challenges for TB vaccine development.
