Jessica Y. Ho
University of Pennsylvania, Class of 2009
Jessica has had a longtime interest in infectious diseases and global health disparities. She currently hopes to pursue a doctoral degree in demography. This summer Jessica's mentor was LDI Senior Fellow Arthur Caplan, Ph.D., and her project was entitled "Ethics of Vaccines." She worked on compiling resources for a volume on vaccine ethics and a comprehensive bibliography on the current literature available on vaccine development, policy, and legislation. Jessica also had the opportunity to conduct in-depth research on and write about the ethical, logistical, economic, and social issues involved in conducting clinical trials of HIV candidate vaccines in developing countries.
