Main roles in project

ASA will develop stable liquid adjuvant formulations. For this purpose a sterile filling process has to be implemented and validated. Furthermore, a product specification has to be compiled consisting of analytical techiques according to GMP. The stability of the resulting formulation will be evaluated by long term trials at different storage temperatures. Finally, ASA will be responsible for the production and filling of GMP-grade c-di-AMP to be used in the GLP-tox studies, animal trials and human challenge studies. ASA will also contribute to the management and coordination of the consortium as a work package leader.
