Jeff Hackman is the Sr. Vice President, Commercial Operations for Intercell AG and President and CEO of Intercell USA. In this role, he supervises the global marketing and sales efforts, and commercial partnerships for the company focusing on the successful global launch of Intercell's first licensed product, IXIARO/JESPECTÂ®(Japanese Encephalitis vaccine).
And this is exactly what he talked to us about at the World Vaccine Congress in Washington DC in April 2012.
We had the pleasure to find out more about the preclinical and clinical features of the novel high quality JEV vaccine Intercell is currently working on.
Jeff also went into detail of Intercell's biotech strategy to market the vaccine for travellers and armed forces.
A key take-away point is that partnerships are key to move projects like these forward and Intercell is no exception. Through a partnership concept Jeff Hackman is leading these efforts to move the vaccine into the pediatric arena of endemic countries.
