April 27, 2012 - PRLog -- NEEDHAM, MASS. – April 27, 2012 – Adjuvants and Novel Delivery Systems are widely accepted as key to creating more efficacious vaccines with improved methods for storage and delivery. Join us August 15-16, 2012 in Cambridge, MA as this leading vaccine meeting addresses the ongoing achievements of creating the next generation of vaccines, including toll-like receptor technology and DNA vaccines. Though lack of FDA approval for new adjuvants presents a major hurdle, researchers continue to delineate adjuvants’ mode of action in the quest to improve vaccines for human use. In the Adjuvants & Delivery Systems meeting, vaccine leaders will discuss their innovative work that is creating a new era of advanced vaccines. For more information, please visit
