Application of analytical characterization tools in process and formulation development of low cost vaccines using the ULTRA manufacturing platform

Conference Dates

June 17-22, 2018


In 2016, an estimated 19.5 million infants worldwide did not receive routine life-saving vaccinations according to the World Health Organization (WHO)1. Two major limitations in improving global vaccination coverage include the costs associated with vaccine manufacturing and the challenges associated with maintaining a consistent supply. The aim of the ‘ULTRA’ project (Ultra Low-cost TRansferable Automated Platform for Vaccine Manufacturing) is to standardize the development and production of new protein subunit vaccine candidates at globally affordable costs by creating a generic, low-cost, integrated, and automated vaccine manufacturing platform. In a collaborative effort between MIT, UCL, and KU (Figure 1), state-of-the-art analytical tools will be utilized to provide well-characterized vaccine bulk and drug product facilitating process changes and reduced QC costs.
