Combined and Novel Adjuvant Strategies to Enhance and Direct Immune Responses to Influenza A Virus V

Date: Time: 10:00 am
Contact: Dr. Angela Pannier, (402) 472-0896,
Vaccines have been a tremendous breakthrough by preventing illness and death due to infectious disease. However, there remains many relevant pathogens, including influenza A virus (IAV), that do not have effective vaccines. Therefore, investigation of strategies to improve vaccination is essential. One such strategy is the use of adjuvants, which are vaccine additives that can enhance immune responses elicited by vaccination. Examination of new adjuvants and adjuvant systems will contribute to development of improved vaccines. This dissertation investigated two adjuvant systems, combined pattern recognition receptor (PRR) agonists and the biomaterial chitosan (CS).
