Bioprocessing & Manufacturing Track



With new vaccine formulations and technology platforms, vaccine developers need to have the right processes in place to manufacture them during clinical trials and at commercial scale.

Use this opportunity to meet with the manufacture and bioprocessing leads who need services for all of the latest manufacturing challenges, from formulating and manufacturing adjuvants, mRNA platforms, VLPs and viral vectors, to technology transfer and continuous manufacturing.

Combining intradermal delivery and adjuvants; A new frontier in vaccine enhancement

Elderly persons with comorbidities are at the highest risk of hospitalization for influenza infection and its complications; however, vaccine immunogenicity among these at-risk individuals is suboptimal due to immunosenescence.Various strategies including intradermal vaccination and new vaccine adjuvants have been shown to improve immunogenicity.In this presentation we will give an overview of discrete strategies to improve immune responses (i.e. ID delivery and adjuvants), our own clinical experience, and novel combinations of intradermal delivery and adjuvants that have started to show promise in the clinic.
