Project description

This project seeks to dramatically improve the development of anticancer and antibacterial vaccines by removing the two most important thresholds to development: difficulties in identifying suitable epitopes, and the lack of effective vaccine formulations. We will moreover demonstrate our approach on two highly relevant cases: tuberculosis and lung cancer.
