Bencherif’s Research Featured on Front Cover of Advanced Science
ChE Assistant Professor Sidi A. Bencherif‘s research on “Biomaterials and Oxygen Join Forces to Shape the Immune Response and Boost COVID-19 Vaccines” was featured on the front cover of Advanced Science. Advanced Science publishes cutting-edge research, selected through a strict and fair reviewing process, and presented using the highest quality production standards to create a premium open access journal.
This cover artwork depicts a subcutaneously injected oxygen-releasing cryogel-based COVID-19 vaccine boosting the immune response, leading to a sustained production of highly effective neutralizing antibodies against SARS-CoV-2.
In their publication, the Bencherif lab (Thibault Colombani et al.) in collaboration with the Griffiths lab at Boston University’s National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratories (NEIDL) demonstrate that advanced biomaterials and oxygen can be leveraged to boost the effectiveness of SARS-CoV-2 vaccines.
