Companies and institutions working in vaccine development and production
Leiden Bio Science Park hosts many organisations working on research, development and production of vaccines. This ranges from fundamental research to large scale vaccine production. Prophylactic vaccines against infectious diseases represent the majority of vaccine products at Leiden Bio Science Park, but companies are also working on therapeutic vaccines.
For instance ISA Pharmaceuticals works on prophylactic vaccines against HPV and Janssen Vaccines is involved in the fast track consortium that develops an Ebola therapeutic vaccine.
These are examples of the innovative and involved environment that makes Leiden Bio Science Park an attractive location for research and development on vaccines and infectious diseases.
