Biological Engineering Department WebEx Seminar


The BE Department's Seminar Series Speaker, Dr. Christopher Fox, VP of Formulations at the Infectious Disease Research Institute, will present: "From Bench to Clinic: Development of the 3M-052-Alum Vaccine Adjuvant Formulation".

April 7th at 10:30 am through WebEx

For nearly a century, aluminum salts have been the most widely used vaccine adjuvant formulation, with an established history of safety and efficacy. Nevertheless, for extremely challenging disease targets such as tuberculosis or HIV, the adjuvant activity of aluminum salts is not adequate to achieve protective efficacy. This presentation will describe a formulation approach to solving this challenge by developing a lipid-based nanosuspension of a synthetic TLR7/8 ligand (3M-052), that facilitates adsorption to aluminum oxyhydroxide (Alum) via the structural properties of the lipid excipient employed.

Psychosocial Issues Related to Pregnancy and Fertility for Women with Disabilities - Roxanna Nasseri Pebdani

Lecture/Readings | Year of the Woman

Women with disabilities face many barriers to pregnancy and fertility, most of which are not physical. From society sending messages that women with disabilities are asexual to physicians not knowing how to handle the pregnancy of a woman with a disability, the obstacles can be plentiful. During this talk, Dr. Pebdani will address the structural and psychosocial barriers that women with disabilities face, and will identify methods to reduce or eliminate these barriers.

Dr. Roxanna Nasseri Pebdani is a Senior Lecturer and Course Director in the Discipline of Rehabilitation Counselling at the University of Sydney. She is a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. She has authored or co-authored over 20 journal articles and book chapters and has conducted over thirty presentations at local, national, and international conferences. Dr. Pebdani’s research interests are in women's issues in disability, specifically pregnancy and fertility. Dr. Pebdani also conducts research on sexuality and disability.
