What diseases have we worked on?

The scientists in our research and development (R&D) programmes are committed to providing innovative vaccines.


We study and develop solutions for emerging strains of viruses to help protect our future. Our work includes:

Nanoparticle technology

These are particles so small they can’t be seen by the human eye. To the immune system, these nanoparticles look like a virus—but the vaccine doesn't have the actual virus in it. We use these nanoparticles to trigger the body’s immune response.

Protein subunit technology

This is a well-known and established technology used to fight against illnesses such as the seasonal flu, HPV and Haemophilus influenzae type B.

Adjuvant technology

We work with adjuvant technology that is combined with our nanoparticle technology. It includes a naturally derived ingredient that comes from the bark of a Chilean tree. Adjuvants are used to help create a stronger immune response in your body.
