Faculty Highlights

Professor David Kaplan
David Kaplan talks about his research on a new silk-based stabilizer that could keep some vaccines and antibiotics stable up to temperatures of 60 °C, potentially eliminating the need to keep them refrigerated. "This could potentially eliminate the need for a cold-chain system, greatly decreasing costs and enabling more widespread availability of these life-saving drugs," says Kaplan. Learn more >
