    Re: vaccine

    I tends to be microbiologist and immunologist that lay the first stones for vaccine developments. They are later helped by MDs and people working in pharmaceutical companies.

    The World Health Organization has information on "Development of new vaccines". Here are two snippets from this website located on http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs289/en/ [Broken]
