Washington, DC – July 19, 2011 – Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), which primarily affect poor people in developing countries, are now being found among the poor in relatively affluent regions as well, particularly in parts of Eastern Europe with a history of war and conflict. This is the focus of a new article in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases authored by Dr. Peter Hotez, President of the Sabin Vaccine Institute, and Meredith Gurwith of Georgetown University.
The Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas (TAMEST) welcomed Sabin President Dr. Peter Hotez as one of its six newest members today.
TAMEST, founded in 2004, brings together Texas’ top scientific, academic and corporate minds to further position the state as a national research leader and to provide broader recognition of the state's top achievers in medicine, engineering and science. Members include Texas Nobel Laureates and more than 240 National Academies members.

Washington, DC – June 2, 2011 – A new perspective authored by Peter Hotez, Jeffrey Sachs and others in the New England Journal of Medicine reinforces the importance of integrating neglected tropical disease (NTD) control measures into existing control efforts for HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.
