CU Boulder Research: $1.1M For Next-Generation Vaccine Development

Posted by Emily Olson on Fri, Nov 18, 2016

Researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder have received a $1.1 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to support development of next-generation vaccines. If the project is successful, these new vaccines will be able to defend against diseases with just one shot and won't need to be refrigerated. These improvements could have an immense impact on the difficult challenge of dispensing life-saving immunizations.

$8M Granted to Irvine Researchers for Q Fever Vaccine

Posted by Laura Braden on Fri, May 27, 2016


Q fever, an infectious disease caused by the bacteria Coxiella burnetii, is common among livestock such as cattle, sheep and goats. The bacteria can be transmitted to humans through the inhalation of barnyard dust that is contaminated with animal excretion containing the bacteria. Along with passing from livestock to humans, Q fever has been aerosolized in the past and used for biological warfare.
