Paradigm shifts in vaccine development: From empirical approaches into the center of biotech industry
Alexander von Gabain, Chief Scientific Officer, Intercell AG

Vaccine development has a strong comeback within the pharma industry and the healthcare sector. Progress made in understanding the immune system, dissecting host-parasite interactions and production of biologics has made it possible to tailor vaccines against diseases and pathogens that were out of reach with classical empirical approaches. Identification of highly specific antigens, novel adjuvants and delivery systems allow to overcome previous restrictions in vaccine targets but also to design therapeutic vaccines.
