MediGene, Johns Hopkins join on HPV vax research

MediGene, a Martinsried/Munich-based biotech, and The Johns Hopkins University will work together to create HPV vaccine candidates using the German firm's AAVLP platform.

MediGene hopes the platform can be used for viral infection and cancer vaccines as well. Release
