Vaccines: the end of the cold war?

How the award-winning ensilication technology could remove the need to refrigerate life-saving vaccines

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

MOTHERHOOD changes people, irreversibly. For me it was not just becoming a parent, but it also influenced the direction of my research. When my daughter was only a few days old, I took her to the doctors to be vaccinated with BCG vaccine (against tuberculosis). The doctor took the vaccine out of the fridge and administered it directly. That’s when I asked: “why must vaccines be refrigerated?”,and then the natural follow-up question, “can I help to make them stable at room temperatures?
