Biodesign Center for Immunotherapy, Vaccines and Virotherapy

Biodesign Center for Immunotherapy, Vaccines and Virotherapy

The Biodesign Institute's Center for Immunotherapy, Vaccines and Virotherapy is poised to become a major center of scientific advances and a resource for clinical development of novel therapies against cancer, immune disorders, and infectious diseases. As well, unexpected discoveries in the mechanisms of microbial pathogenesis and host-pathogen interactions will be driven by the center's scientific strengths in vaccine development, immunotherapy, virotherapy, disease dynamics, host-pathogen interactions, and next-generation therapeutics.

The center is crafting next-generation treatment strategies in the areas of vaccines, engineered viruses and bacteria, and immune-based therapeutics under the leadership of Grant McFadden, a professor in the School of Life Sciences
