Dr. Sean Tucker, Founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Vaxart, Inc., will be presenting at the World Vaccine Congress Washington 2024 in Washington, D.C. on April 3, 2024. This is a recurring appearance for the company at the annual event in the nation’s capital. During his presentation, Dr. Tucker will discuss “Moving the needle: Blocking transmission and boosting existing vaccines by oral tablet vaccination.” The presentation is scheduled for Wednesday, April 3, 2024 at 3:10 p.m. Eastern Time in Room 207A.

Vaxart is a clinical-stage biotechnology company that specializes in developing oral recombinant vaccines using its proprietary delivery platform. These vaccines are designed to be taken via pills, making them easy to store and ship without refrigeration while also eliminating the risk of needle-stick injuries. The company believes that its pill vaccine delivery platform has great potential for delivering a range of vaccines, including oral versions of existing vaccines and new indications.

Currently, Vaxart’s development programs include pill vaccines for protection against coronavirus, norovirus, influenza and HPV (human papillomavirus), as well as a therapeutic vaccine for cancer treatment using adenovirus and TLR3 agonists. The company has filed various patent applications domestically and internationally to cover its proprietary technology related to oral vaccination using adenovirus and TLR3 agonists.
