Abstract

Current vaccines rely on immune components in the blood. We are taking a different approach, which focuses on immunity at the body surfaces. These are the areas where pathogens first gain access to the body and we have shown that immune cells in these regions are far more potent than those that need to be recruited from the circulation.
