ADDomer – A New Kind of Vaccine for Untreatable Infection
Video

Scientists from the University of Bristol, CNRS and Imophoron Ltd worked with the computer technology giant Oracle to develop a new kind of vaccine that needs no refrigeration. They used synthetic biology, cryo-electron microscopy and high-performance cloud computing to produce a candidate vaccine against the mosquito-borne chikungunya virus. Their findings could revolutionise the way vaccines are designed, developed and stored.

Monoclonal Antibodies: Making Cancer a Target
Video

Monoclonal antibodies, like the drugs Avastin (bevacizumab), Herceptin (trastuzumab), and Rituxin (rituximab), are effective in treating a wide range of cancer types such as lung cancer, breast cancer, lymphoma, and others. By binding to cancer antigens, monoclonal antibodies mark the cells for destruction by the immune system. Clinical trials of more monoclonal antibodies for additional cancer types are ongoing.
