About This Project

University College Dublin, Ireland

Klebsiella pneumoniae is an antibiotic resistant bacterium that causes extensive infections and poses a serious health threat to patients and healthcare systems. The lack of effective antibiotics means that preventing infection with vaccines is the only viable solution to protect people. Using our technology platform, we have identified several exciting candidate vaccine antigens from K. pneumoniae, which we now need to test if they successfully protect mice from bacterial challenge.
