IAVI and VaxDesign partner to develop a clinical trial in a test tube for AIDS vaccines
Date:3/3/2008

will be the ultimate test for our MIMIC technology. We are excited to partner with IAVI to help develop the next generation of AIDS vaccine candidates, said Dr. William Warren, President and CEO of VaxDesign.

Targeted primarily to small- and medium-sized biotechnology companies, IAVIs Innovation Fund will proactively seek out and finance nascent technologies that could help solve some of the main technical and scientific hurdles facing AIDS vaccine research and ultimately lead to the development of more promising candidates for human testing. With an initial three-year commitment of US$10 million, half of which will be financed by a US$5 million grant to IAVI from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Innovation Fund will provide rapid and flexible funding in just eight weeks from application to award for pioneering ideas outside the traditional realm of AIDS vaccine research.

Now more than ever, the AIDS vaccine field needs out-of-the-box concepts that can help us develop better candidates for testing, said Dr. Seth Berkley, IAVI President and CEO. VaxDesigns novel technology is one of many hidden gems that we plan to seek out and develop for AIDS vaccine research.

"The Gates Foundation is proud to support IAVI in exploring innovative approaches for addressing the challenges of discovering an effective HIV vaccine," said Dr. Jos Esparza, Senior Advisor on HIV Vaccines for the Gates Foundation. "IAVI and its partners have a track record of advancing novel vaccine technologies, and of moving promising concepts rapidly into development."
