We are interested in developing vaccines against drugs of abuse.  Using bacteriophage virus-like particle vaccine platforms, we display drugs of abuse and elicit high titer, long-lasting antibodies that can sequester the drug in the blood, preventing the effect of the drug. This work is a collaboration with Dr. Bryce Chackerian's laboratory (University of New Mexico) and Dr. Naomi Lee's laboratory (Northern Arizona University).
