My laboratory is interested in the development of vaccines against select agents focusing onBrucella spp. We incorporate the microencapsulation technology to increase safety and efficacy of vaccines for human and animal use. These studies are principally targeted on the understanding of the response to infection by the host and elucidating the correlates of protective immunity elicited by the encapsulated and non-encapsulated vaccines.
