Hello. I'm Professor Sevda Senel from
Hacettepe University Department of
Pharmaceutical Technology, which is based in Ankara, Turkey.
Today, I will give you a brief introduction on
vaccine delivery science, which is my main research area.
In my presentation, I will first give a brief introduction to immunization;
then, I will talk about vaccine formulation ingredients and types of antigens,
and, also, how we deliver these vaccines,
which routes we use,
and which delivery systems we use for vaccine preparations.
The adjuvants, which are most important for vaccine delivery
I will go into much deeper detail,
and I will give some examples of the approved adjuvants,
and, also, mention about their mechanisms.
Finally, I will very briefly mention about
the different approaches to obtain
vaccine antigens, which are edible plant-based vaccines.
In my presentation, I will talk only on prophylactic vaccines
but, we know that there are therapeutic vaccines.
I will give a very brief introduction and
information about the therapeutic vaccines as well,
and finally, I will conclude on how to have a successful vaccine formulation.
