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.


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