Vaccine Reserach

Infectious diseases pose a significant threat to public health, animal health, food supply and the economy. Vaccines are one of the most cost-effective approaches to prevent emergence and spread of diseases in both animals and humans. Vaccines that target disease control in domesticated animals can prevent diseases in both humans and animals. 


Our immunologists and vaccinologists engage in research related to One Health, recognizing that preventing transmission of emerging infectious diseases at the animal-human interface is critically important for protecting the world population from pandemics and bio-threat agents. Our researchers are involved in development of new vaccines with improved efficacy and safety by (i) better understanding of immune mechanisms of protection from disease, (ii) developing novel adjuvants that enhance potency and longevity of immune response and (iii) engineering new vectors as vaccine delivery vehicles for broad and prolonged immunity.
