Product Development 

The IAVI Product Development Center serves the product development needs of the global health field 

The IAVI Product Development Center’s (PDC) mission is to support product development activities of government, nonprofits, industry partners, and public-private partnerships in addition to IAVI’s own product development efforts. The PDC plays a critical role in global health by filling a gap in development of vaccines and monoclonal antibodies against infectious diseases that disproportionately affect people living in low- and middle-income countries. Today, investigators from the U.S. National Institutes of Health and European funding partners are among those who utilize IAVI’s PDC. 

To our partners, IAVI’s PDC offers: 

We advance vaccines and antibodies through the pathway from discovery to licensure 

The PDC’s interdisciplinary structure and focus was built to mirror the product development process at biopharmaceutical companies, allowing us to guide products from preclinical testing through to licensure and global access.  

We work with funders and partners to understand the objectives and unique requirements of each project. We support each project through comprehensive project, program, and portfolio management, with collaborative governance structures. We use a global footprint model to conduct clinical trials, contract development and manufacturing organization, and contract research organization activities. We have found this integrated and collaborative approach enables us to advance products rapidly along the discovery to licensure pathway.  

IAVI launched the Vaccine Product Development Center in 2013 with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
