Dr. Grill, a professor at Keck Graduate Institue (KGI), Dean of Research also teaches undergraduates at the Keck Science Department of The Claremont Colleges.  His lab’s research at KGI is focused on low-cost vaccines for developing countries. The primary collaborator for this effort is the Botswana Vaccine Institute in Gaborone, Botswana. The focus of these efforts has been to address animal diseases that are devastating to smallholder farmers in Africa. With the disastrous COVID-19 outbreak, the research is now targeting the development of low-cost COVID-19 vaccines for the African countries. Dr. Grill received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Riverside in 1979. He has published over 25 scientific papers and is an inventor on more than 30 issued US and world patents.
