Nanopatch polio vaccine delivers
Efforts to rid the world of polio have taken another significant step, thanks to research led by University of Queensland bioscience experts and funding from the World Health Organisation (WHO).
AID researchers are drawn from infectious disease experts from across QIMR and UQ who apply leading technologies to identify, understand and prevent infectious disease.
The core AID research themes are bacterial, viral, parasitic and fungal infectious diseases afflicting humans. This microbial pathogenesis research effort brings together basic science and clinical research.
AID links molecular microbiological and clinical expertise from the UQ Faculties of Science and Health Sciences, and UQCCR, UQCCHR, IMB, AIBN and the Diamantina Institute.
