Vaxart to Speak at World Vaccine Congress Washington 2024 on April 3

Vaxart, Inc., a South San Francisco, California-based clinical-stage biotechnology company, announced that Dr. Sean Tucker, the company’s Founder and Chief Scientific Officer, will be presenting at the World Vaccine Congress Washington 2024 in Washington, D.C. on April 3, 2024. This marks a recurring appearance for the company at the annual event in Washington, D.C.

During his presentation, Dr. Tucker will discuss the topic of “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 focused on developing oral recombinant vaccines using its proprietary delivery platform. These vaccines are designed to be administered via pills, eliminating the need for refrigeration and reducing the risk of needle-stick injuries while allowing easy storage and shipping of vaccines without refrigeration. The company believes that its pill vaccine delivery platform is well-suited 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 as well as a therapeutic vaccine for human papillomavirus (HPV), the company’s first immune-oncology indication. Additionally, Vaxart has filed various patent applications domestically and internationally to cover its proprietary technology and creations related to oral vaccination using adenovirus and TLR3 agonists.
