Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley to Visit Novavax in Celebration of HHS-BARDA Contract Award
Date:3/3/2011

to compete and win in the new economy and their contributions are proof of what biotechnology and life sciences can mean to the future of our State and our nation. I'd like to thank Dr. Singhvi and all of the Novavax employees for their commitment and dedication to this important healing and lifesaving work."

Novavax is currently developing vaccines to prevent pandemic (H5N1) and seasonal influenza using its novel VLP technology, which enables more rapid vaccine production than traditional egg-based methods.  The BARDA contract award follows the August 2010 Report to the President on Reengineering the Influenza Vaccine Production Enterprise to Meet the Challenges of Pandemic Influenza by the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, which analyzed current influenza vaccine production processes and identified ways the U.S. federal government could support improvements in relevant technologies to reduce the time required to supply vaccine to the U.S. population when the next influenza pandemic occurs.

About VLPs and Novavax's Vaccine Program

Virus-like particles (VLPs) mimic the external structure of viruses but lack the live genetic material that causes viral replication and infection. VLPs can be designed quickly to match individual viral strains and be produced efficiently using portable cell-culture technology. Novavax's VLP-based vaccine candidates are produced more rapidly than egg-based vaccines by using proprietary, portable, recombinant cell-culture technology.
