The second annual Einstein-Montefiore Presidential Lecture featured lectures by Betsy C. Herold, M.D., and William R. Jacobs, Jr., Ph.D. on their collaborative efforts to develop a vaccine for herpes viruses HSV-1 and HSV-2. The novel vaccine they've engineered has shown remarkable results in early testing and plans are now under way to assess the vaccine in Phase 1 clinical trials.
