All-Division Colloquium

Manipulating the Immune System for Therapeutic Benefit


Presenting: Manipulating the Immune System for Therapeutic Benefit

Vaccines manipulate the immune system to provide protection against infectious diseases. However, most vaccines only provide antibodies and often leave significant proportions of the population unprotected. In addition, manipulating the immune system with vaccines to treat autoimmune or allergic disease would be an important goal. This lecture will describe new approaches to adjuvant development to help manipulate the immune system to prevent and treat disease. Altering specific immune responses and providing broader immune protection towards many infections is a goal that could be achievable with new adjuvant development.
