Vector Evaluation and Quality Control Team

The Vector Evaluation and Quality Control Team designs, develops, and implements in vitro assays to enhance the quality of our vaccine production and purification procedures, as well as to refine the analyses of our vaccine candidates before advancing them to preclinical studies. Additionally, we process small-scale vaccine production and characterize them with established in vitro analytical assays. Our partnership with the Vaccine Vector Design Team is integral through the vaccine evaluation phase, and we also collaborate closely with the Immunobiology Team throughout preclinical studies, analyzing an extensive array of samples.
