What diseases have we worked on?
The scientists in our research and development (R&D) programs are committed to providing innovative vaccines.


We study and develop solutions for emerging strains of viruses to help protect our future. Our work includes:

Protein-based technology

This well-known and established technology has been helping people for decades. Protein subunit vaccines have been used to fight against diseases and pathogens like seasonal flu, HPV, and hepatitis B.

Nanoparticle technology

These are particles so small they can’t be seen by the human eye. To the immune system, these nanoparticles look like a virus—but the vaccine doesn't have the actual virus in it. We use these nanoparticles to trigger the body’s immune response.

Exclusive adjuvant

We work with an adjuvant (added ingredient) that is combined with our nanoparticles. It includes a naturally derived ingredient that comes from the bark of a Chilean tree. Adjuvants are used to help create a stronger immune response in your body.
