2012 Board of Trustees meeting held in Seoul
The annual meeting brought together members of the 22-seat board, including Board Chairman Prof. Ragnar Norrby, former Director-General of the Swedish Institute for Infectious Disease Control; Dr. Christian Loucq, Director-General of IVI; and representatives from a number of collaborating organizations and donors of the Institute. The board welcomed Dr. Viveka Persson from the Swedish National Agency for Higher Education as a new member representing Sweden, one of IVI’s signatory countries.
The Institute’s Scientific Advisory Group (SAG) and Facilities Committee also convened its annual meeting earlier the same week. New members in attendance included Dr. Duane Gubler, professor at Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore’s Program on Emerging Infectious Diseases; Dr. Claudio Lanata, senior researcher at the Instituto de Investigacion Nutricional in Peru; and Dr. David Sack, professor at Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health.
At both meetings, members of BOT and SAT shared their comments and recommendations regarding IVI’s projects, organizational and governance systems, and future strategies and research priorities.
