Strategic Advisory Group

Further, our SAG guides us on optimal approaches to partnering, relationship management, transparency, advocacy and communications. Our SAG also makes recommendations for outreach activities to maximize the effectiveness of the Hilleman Laboratories.

Our SAG members provide us with key input on portfolio development, including guiding principles and criteria for project selection, considerations for product development strategies for developing world markets, review of risk analysis and risk management approaches and recommendations on the balance of the portfolio in relation to high level objectives.


Our SAG members hailing from Asia, Africa, Europe, and the U.S. possess expertise across a spectrum of disciplines in vaccine discovery, development, delivery and intellectual property. They are noted academicians and representatives from international universities, foundations, and other organizational bodies.
