CHALLENGE

T cells play a key role in protective immune response but are not incorporated into any existing vaccines. Traditional products leverage the humoral (B cell) rather than cellular (T cell) arm of the immune system.

PROGRAM STRATEGY

The foundation is committed to researching new vaccines for a number of infectious diseases that disproportionately impact individuals living in developing countries. T cell response is critically important for protection from a number of foundation priority diseases.

PARTNER
