The talk would provide background on vaccine technology and highlight its principle deficiencies—the poor stability of antigens and difficulty in producing strong humoral responses from single injections. It will cover the coordination polymers and immunology at a level suitable for a general audience.
Upon completion, participants will be able to describe critical shortcomings with vaccines.
…participants will be able to describe current methods to produce stable vaccine formulations that enhance humoral activity by antigen presentation
…participants will have learned of key materials properties important to the formulation of new drug products based on biologically derived drugs.
