Vaccines & Global Health ~ MIT Spotlight 11/9

The MIT Enterprise Forum of Cambridge's Innovation Series spotlights Vaccines & Global Health: New Technologies Create Global Opportunities this coming Monday, November 9, 2009 6-9p in the MIT Stata Center's Kirsch Auditorium...
"From SARS to HIV, infectious disease remains a global public health concern for emerging and developed nations alike... Pharma has recently cut a number of deals with emerging biotechnology companies piloting new approaches to infectious disease therapy to both address a pressing market need and help fill their pipelines. New funding for projects from basic research to vaccine development, has afforded academia and industry additional incentives to renew the commitment to developing new approaches to treating disease."
