Dr. Burlet was invited to give a talk at the 7th International Vaccines R&D conference, taking place in Boston, MA November 7th-9th. She will present VaxForm's latest work and findings on the pre-clinical development of our oral COVID-19 vaccine.
Dr. Burlet was invited to give a talk on VaxForm's oral COVID-19 vaccine at the international conference Vaccine Technology VIII, taking place in Sitges, Spain, June 10th-16th.
Vaccine Technology is the leading conference focused on the discovery, development and manufacture of vaccines. It brings together internationally leading experts to discuss the technologies and discoveries that have advanced vaccines for global needs.
Dr. Burlet's presentation will be part of the "Formulation and Delivery" session.
VaxForm and sister company USSF were featured in an episode of Living in the Lehigh Valley on PBS39. Watch the episode from April 18th on oral COVID-19 vaccines to learn more about VaxForm's oral delivery platform technology and its progress through clinical development thanks to their partnership with USSF.
Dr. Brett Gershman, post-doctoral research associate at VaxForm, will present some of our work on COVID-19 vaccine development at the NFID Virtual 2021 Annual Conference on Vaccinology Research (ACVR) taking place April 26-27, 2021. His Abstract titled “Development of a recombinant protein subunit vaccine against COVID-19 with a novel adjuvant system to induce a balanced Th1/Th2 immune response" was selected for an oral presentation.

VaxForm publishes the results of the non-clinical safety studies of their vaccine candidate for Streptococcus Pyogenes. Rabbits were administered the maximum anticipated dose of the vaccine and exhibited no significant adverse reaction events. This is a great milestone achievement towards the initiation of first-in-human clinical trial of the vaccine.
