/BIKEN Innovative Vaccine Research Alliance Laboratories  About

  As the recent Ebola virus outbreak in Africa and the worldwide influenza pandemic have powerfully demonstrated, society demands the development, production, and distribution of vaccines against infectious diseases. To meet this strong demand, The Research Foundation for Microbial Diseases of Osaka University (BIKEN) and the Research Institute for Microbial Disease, Osaka University (RIMD) have established a new research organization, called The BIKEN Innovative Vaccine Research Alliance Laboratories, to promote the co-operative development of vaccines. Here, we are developing new technologies to acquire basic information required to design next-generation vaccines.
