ImmunoBEAM: A Novel Biomaterial Conjugate as a Therapeutic Vaccination Platform

17-year-old Amit Scheer’s nanobiotechnology research led to the development of a novel scaffold vaccination platform to drastically improve how our immune system is recruited, activated and targeted towards not only traditional vaccine targets, such as viral infections, but also toward diseases such as cancer. His project could advance the field of immunotherapy against a number of other diseases.
