Organic Chemistry Seminar – Aaron Hendricksen, Chemistry Graduate Student
WSU Pullman - Fulmer Hall

Adjuvant additives significantly increase vaccine efficacy. However, adjuvants also cause inflammatory side-effects, such as pyrexia, which currently limits their use. To address this, we created a thermophobic vaccine adjuvant engineered to attenuate potency at temperatures correlating to pyrexia. Thermophobic adjuvants were synthesized by combining a rationally designed trehalose glycolipid CLR agonist with thermoresponsive poly-N-isoporpylacrylamide (NIPAM) via Reversible Addition-Fragmentation Chain-Transfer polymerization.
