  • HPV virus-like particles as a vaccine delivery system and adjuvant,
  • Malaria p47 protein for use as a vaccine or as product therapeutic antibodies,
  • Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) phenol soluble proteins (PSM) for use as a vaccine immunogen,
  • Norovirus (Norwalk) antibodies for treatment and prevention of virus disease,
  • Strongyliodes (S. stercoralis) immunoreactive antigen (SsIR) for use as therapeutic or preventive vaccine,
  • Use of the 10E8 broadly neutralizing antibody for HIV treatment and prevention,
  • Methods to induce anti-HIV CD8 activity:
    • Methods for use of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR),
    • Methods for CD8 reactivation using PBMCs from AIDS-infected individuals,  
  • Use of octameric anthrax protective antigen protein (PA) for treatment of cancers and infectious diseases.
