The CDVAX partners have had their kick off meeting and are now busy working on their first set of deliverables to achieve the various milestones for this project. Our team members are working in the laboratories to grow spores and generate immunological reagents. We are at an important time for project planning at the moment, so that everything can run smoothly over the next three years. Over the next month we have a few visits between partners to transfer our knowledge and skill sets. These visits are very valuable and will enable us to quickly move forward on our tasks ahead.
