EXPAND ID, NATHEB and PATVAX are all business-led R&D projects dedicated to combating infectious disease.
The EXPAND ID project is seeking to explore intradermal vaccination applications, following the success of the first intradermal influenza vaccine. The project is led by BD in Grenoble, with support from Sanofi Pasteur and INSERM unit U851 in Lyon.
NATHEB (novel approaches to treatment of chronic hepatitis B infections) is a 100% Lyon-based project led by the company EDELRIS. The INSERM national research institute and the life science companies POXEL and TRANSGENE are project partners.
The PATVAX project is seeking to develop innovative devices for measuring biological interactions in heterogeneous milieus, for use in the in-line monitoring of industrial biomanufacturing processes. The project is led by Sanofi Pasteur in Lyon and includes other Lyon-based partners (MERIAL, SmartINST and the ENS Physics Laboratory) and Grenoble-based organizations (CEA LETI and CYBERSTAR).
