[Source: StatePress.com] – Researchers at the Biodesign Institute are working with international partners to come up with a faster way to develop vaccines.

ASU postdoctoral researcher James Jancovich said current methods to develop vaccines aren’t as efficient as they could be.

“The majority of processes now are sort of hypothesis-driven,” he said.

The Rapid Vaccine-Discovery System is a different approach to finding vaccines, Jancovich said.
