Faculty Highlights

Professor David Kaplan
Dr. 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. "We have already begun trying to broaden the impact of what we're doing to apply to all vaccines," says Kaplan. "Based on what we've seen with other proteins, peptides, and enzymes, there's no reason to believe that this wouldn't be universal. This could potentially eliminate the need for a cold-chain system, greatly decreasing costs and enabling more widespread availability of these life-saving drugs." Learn more >
