The late Prof. Adel Mahmoud, former Chairman of the IVI Board of Trustees

The International Vaccine Institute (IVI) is greatly saddened by the June 11 passing of Prof. Adel Mahmoud, former Chairman of the IVI Board of Trustees and a global pioneer in the treatment and prevention of infectious diseases.

Prof. Mahmoud joined the IVI BOT as a member-at-large in 2010 and served as its Chairman from 2013 when IVI was going through a difficult period, before resigning due to health reasons in February of this year. He came to the IVI Board after a remarkable career in academia and industry, culminating as the President of Merck Vaccines.  Before passing away, he was a Professor of the Department of Molecular Biology and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University, USA.

IVI is a stronger and more vital institution because of Prof. Mahmoud’s vision and leadership. IVI is eternally grateful to him and would like to extend our deepest and most sincere condolences to his family and to all those who knew him, as we join the community in  the mourning of his loss. He will be remembered and dearly missed by IVI and the broader international community for his contributions to global health.
