Lisa A. Jackson, MD, MPH, is an internist and infectious disease epidemiologist who has conducted clinical and epidemiologic studies of vaccine safety and efficacy since 1991. Dr. Jackson is the Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute (KPWHRI) principal investigator (PI) for the Vaccine Safety Datalink Project sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). She is also PI of the KPWHRI Vaccine and Treatment Evaluation Unit network site—one of nine network sites that the National Institutes of Health sponsors.
Dr. Jackson has written more than 200 peer-reviewed publications and 14 book chapters. She is a past member of the Food and Drug Administration’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee and the National Vaccine Program Office’s National Vaccine Advisory Committee.
After receiving her medical degree from the University of Virginia School of Medicine, in Charlottesville, Dr. Jackson earned her Master of Public Health (MPH) degree at the University of Washington (UW) School of Public Health. She completed her internal medicine residency training at the UW School of Medicine and served as an epidemic intelligence officer and preventive medicine resident at the CDC.
