About this book

Introduction

Vaccine discovery is one of the most exciting and fast-moving areas of applied science. Since Edward Jenner’s work in the 18th century, vaccines have transformed health across the globe. Bringing together clinical, experimental, and computational disciplines vaccinology addresses the most pressing needs of 21st century health-care: the great infectious diseases threatening the developing world, such as HIV, Malaria, and TB; and chronic diseases, such as dementia, threatening the developed world.

This volume seeks to expand the horizons of vaccine design and discovery by highlighting cutting edge work in three areas of vaccinology: the rational discovery of subunit vaccines, the identification of adjuvants, and the delivery of vaccines via state-of-the-art nanotechnology.

Dr. Darren R Flower. An interdisciplinary scientist, with special interest in bioinformatics, computational chemistry, and cheminformatics, Dr. Flower has wide-ranging experience of the pre-clinical research environment in both academia and the pharmaceutical industry. Before joining Aston University as a Reader, Dr. Flower was a Jenner Research Fellow and Principal Investigator at the University of Oxford; and formerly a Senior Group Leader managing a large research group at The Edward Jenner Institute for Vaccine Research. Before that, Dr. Flower was a drug discovery scientist in the Pharmaceutical industry. Dr. Flower is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, and the author of over 150 research papers and reviews, and 7 Books, including the monograph: Bioinformatics for Vaccinology.

Professor Yvonne Perrie is Pharmacist whose research focuses on the development on delivery systems for drugs and vaccines. Prof. Perrie is currently Head of Pharmacy and Chair in Drug Delivery within Aston University.  Prof. Perrie received her Ph.D. from the University of London, UK where she investigated the use of liposomes for gene delivery under the supervision of Professor Gregory Gregoriadis. Prof. Perrie then joined a newly established Drug Delivery Company, Lipoxen Technologies Ltd., prior to taking her post at Aston University. Prof. Perrie is currently Chair of the UK and Ireland Controlled Release Society and has approximately 100 research papers and reviews focusing on the research and development of drug delivery systems.
