Charlotte A. Moser, BS

Charlotte A. Moser, BS, is the assistant director of the Vaccine Education Center and the creator of the Parents PACK program at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

Locations: Main Campus

Background

Ms. Moser has extensively published in scientific journals on the topics of immunology and virology. Through her research, Ms. Moser has contributed to our understanding of how vaccines prevent infections of the intestinal tract. She has also developed a novel method to enhance immune responses to vaccines.

As assistant director of the Vaccine Education Center, Ms. Moser has developed a variety of educational materials about vaccines, and created the Parents PACK program for parents. Ms. Moser is the co-author of Vaccines and Your Child: Separating Fact from Fiction (Columbia University Press, 2011).
