What is it about?

This review provides an important introduction to different types of vaccine production technologies, modern techniques for identifying antigens, vaccine delivery systems, and ways to stimulate the immune system.

Why is it important?

Vaccines are one of the best ways to prevent disease. However, important diseases remain without marketed vaccines. This review provides an outstanding introduction to the many points that a modern vaccine development scientist would consider when developing a new vaccine, and provides many examples of technologies that can be used to speed up the discovery of new vaccine antigens.
