New Whole-Species Pneumococcal Vaccines

Jeremy Webb and collaborators at the School of Biological Sciences in the United Kingdom will search for unique proteins that allow pneumococcal bacteria to form biofilms on mucosal surfaces. The team will use laser capture micro-dissection "laser tweezers" to dissect these bacterial communities with the goal of finding antigens common to all serotypes and could be used as the basis for future vaccines.
