Driving Forces: Dr. Anne S. De Groot

Vaccine innovator Dr. Anne S. De Groot’s accomplishments, studies and publications are vast. She has several titles at several organizations. But for the founder, CEO and chief scientific officer of Providence’s EpiVax Inc., two skills on her LinkedIn profile summarize her best: “Connecting the dots” and “Seeing beyond the horizon.”

Founder of the GAIA Vaccine Foundation in Providence – which got the Gates grant – De Groot is a medical director at Clinica Esperanza, director at the Institute for Immunology and Infomatics at the University of Rhode Island, and has worked on preliminary Ebola vaccine studies with the U.S. Army Research Institute of Infectious Diseases.
