New approaches to vaccine development Mar 21, 2018 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM Frank and Katherine May Lecture, Henry Wellcome Building,
New frontiers in vaccinology rely on structural biology and human immunology that, by providing the molecular basis of a protective immune response, are guiding the structure-based design of more stable and more immunogenic molecules. The resolution of the 3D structure of an antigen, together with the identification and mapping of its antigenic determinants and of new ways to present the antigens to the immune system are providing the basis for the design of new antigens for more effective vaccines.
