DNAvaccine.com is pleased to recognize Harriet L. Robinson, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer at GeoVax Labs, Inc., a biotechnology company that creates, develops and tests innovative HIV/AIDS vaccines. Thank you to Dr. Robinson for your outstanding contributions to the industry!
Dr. Robinson’s early work with HIV vaccines demonstrated that DNA alone would likely not be sufficient to raise protective immunity for HIV. She combined DNA with protein boosters or live viral-vectored boosters to show that effective control might be achieved through a combination of DNA prime and viral-vectored boosters. It is these vaccines that GeoVax licensed for commercial development and now has in Phase 2 clinical trials. Dr. Robinson received her B.A. from Swarthmore College and her PhD in Microbiology from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
