Presentation @ 4th International Vaccine R&D Conference, Baltimore MD, Nov. 2018
November 19, 2018
In a scientific collaboration with Dr Armelle Cuvillier, Chair & CSO of B-Cell Design, a dynamic biotech company based in Limoges, France, we have presented R&D program results, for the first time, at the 4th International Vaccine R&D Conference, Baltimore MD, 14 November (validated animal model, human cohort study). This program was carried out with the University of Strasbourg and in collaboration with Sanofi Pasteur. We demonstrate that microbiota-based antigens can induce neutralizing antibodies capable of cross-reacting with HIV and a novel approach to HIV preventive vaccination. This presentation(*) was well received by our peers in attendance from academia, industry and the National Institutes of Health.
