Hope E. Hopps Fund Contribution
Donation/Fund Description

Hope E. Hopps (1926-1988) was a specialist in infectious diseases, immunology, cell biology and vaccine development. Among Hope's notable scientific contributions were development of a continuous grivet monkey kidney cell line, which was critical for determining the safety of live poliovirus vaccines, and her discovery of the ability of rickettsiae to produce interferon. She was the co-developer of the first subhuman primate cell lines suitable for vaccine production and of the first practical procedure for wide-scale evaluation of rubella immunity. Her efforts to support risky projects and young investigators aided a number of individuals who became renowned cell biologists.

The Hope E. Hopps Fund Contribution supports the Hope E. Hopps Award which was established in memory of Hope E. Hopps, a member of the SIVB for many years who was a vital force in the expansion of the society as an active member, officer, member of the governing board, and an honorary member. The purpose of the award is to recognize a quality student presentation at the Annual Meeting of the SIVB.
