Research Activities

Our major activities are in translational research in two areas:
(1) the development of rapid, point-of-care and/or laboratory-based assays for the diagnosis and management of infectious diseases including HIV, syphilis;
(2) vaccine development using a novel virus-like particle (VLP) technology, especially for malaria. Collaborations in understanding virology and immune responses in influenza and hepatitis C, respectively, and interactions of viruses with polarized hepatocytes.

Techniques/Expertise

Assay development, validation and pilot manufacture for ELISA and rapid, point of care tests (including contract services); VLP vaccine development and immunogenicity testing.
