New MOF Vaccines Could Expand Access to Immunization and Reduce Global Health Care Costs

American Crystallographic Association (ACA)

Many vaccines become ineffective when exposed to room temperature or heat. This challenge can prevent patients from accessing lifesaving immunizations and increase the risk of global pandemics. During the 68th Annual Meeting of the American Crystallographic Association, Jeremiah Gassensmith, University of Texas at Dallas, will describe his lab’s work developing metal-organic framework vaccines. This new biocompatible polymer framework “freezes” proteins inside vaccines. The proteins then dissolve when injected in human skin. This innovation could help health care providers transport and administer vaccines in remote areas with unreliable power.

Nathan Bryan, Ph.D.

Nathan Bryan, Ph.D., one of the top researchers in the world on nitric oxide (NO), will tell attendees of the Institute of Food Technologists Annual Meeting that “a significant body of evidence exists for beneficial cardiovascular effects such as blood pressure, platelets and endothelial function, which are directly associated with NO production in the body. Despite this evidence, too many healthcare providers, food scientists and nutritionists have very little familiarity with these important discoveries, and consumers also have little or no knowledge of this ‘miracle molecule.’”
