Thank you for the overwhelming response to the terrible news of Dr. Halford’s passing. However, this is not the time to despair. Bill dedicated his life to science and his ultimate goal was to bring the vaccine he developed to herpes sufferers.
By the time of his passing, he no longer was a lone crusader. He and his friend and business partner, Agustin Fernandez, assembled a capable team that is dedicated to finishing what Bill has started. We believe that the only way to honor his life is to continue his work and remain focused on the ultimate goal.
How can you help? Stay in touch! Spread the word! If you know anyone affected by this disease, send them here, let them know that they are not alone. Donate to the cause; all money donated to the Halford Vaccine Research fund at the SIU Foundation will be solely used to support research on HSV vaccines.
We will continue updating this blog as information on current developments and future trials becomes available. Stay tuned!
