Carbohydrates as targets of immunity: their synthesis, antibody recognition and use as key vaccine components
Synthetic oligosaccharides are designed and used to identify immunodominant epitopes of bacterial polysaccharide antigens. Conjugates of the most promising oligosaccharides are developed as potential vaccines. Focus is on diarrheal diseases. Shigellosis – bacillary […]
At the forefront of the rising fields of Chemical and Synthetic Biology, CarbUniVax is a multidisciplinary project sitting at the frontier between Glycosciences and Vaccinology. A multidisciplinary strategy is proposed that challenges ambitious goals […]
Sitting at the frontier between the fields of Chemistry, Glycosciences, and Vaccinology, FlexBiVac is a multidisciplinary project aimed at demonstrating the proof of concept for a new generation of polysaccharide-based multivalent vaccines. The concept […]
