Introduction to Vaccine Bioprocess Development

Following a survey of the main different vaccine technology platforms examples will be given for specific case studies. Gardasil® vaccine for prevention of cervical cancer is a great example of a Virus Like Particle (VLP) vaccine. Rotateq® vaccine for prevention of Rotavirus infection is an example of a live virus vaccine. Flublok quadrivalent is a protein-based vaccine for protection against Influenza. For protection against COVID-19 both the Moderna mRNA vaccine and the Pfizer mRNA vaccine are great examples.
