Vaccine development has had a dramatic resurgence due to antibiotic resistance microbes and the threat of bioterrorism. North Carolina has become a major center for vaccine production as well as vaccine development - including novel adjuvant and vaccine vector platforms. A strategic plan will be developed for a proposed North Carolina Center for Vaccine Innovation that will serve as a focal point and catalyst for vaccine development in NC.
