Organization Profile: 
VaxInnate is a privately-held biotechnology company developing novel, proprietary vaccines for both pandemic and seasonal influenza. The company's breakthrough vaccines are based on its Toll-like receptor (TLR) technology platform, which dramatically improves vaccine immunogenicity and efficacy. Using the TLR technology, vaccines can be produced by simple, low-cost, highly-scalable recombinant DNA techniques, avoiding many of the challenges and pitfalls of egg-based or cell-culture influenza vaccine production. VaxInnate's technology has the potential to significantly improve the cost-effectiveness, manufacturing capacity, and potency of influenza vaccines - key issues facing the clinical and public health communities.
