Research Description

Our lab is a multidisciplinary center whose vision is to discover novel antigens and develop effective vaccine formulations that can stimulate the immune system. Some modes of delivery that we have employed include liposomes, nanoparticles, virus-like particles, and immunostimulatory complexes (ISCOMS). We are also studying the effects of the addition of adjuvants and innate immune activators to our model delivery systems. More information can be found here (https://vaccine.uci.edu).
Bio199 students are expected to work closely with graduate students and project scientists in the lab to learn molecular biology and microbiology techniques in addition to an array of immunological assays. Willingness to learn, enthusiasm, and attention to detail are important for success.

Requirements to Participate

3 - 4 hours per unit. 1 year Commitment. Minimum 3 units.
