Nanovaccine Institute

Balaji Narasimhan, Director of the Nanovaccine Institute,  is an Anson Marston Distinguished Professor in Engineering and the Vlasta Klima Balloun Faculty Chair in Chemical and Biological Engineering.

The institute grew from seed funding awarded in 2013 by Iowa State’s Presidential Initiative for Interdisciplinary Research. Narasimhan said then the idea was to create a dream team of nanovaccine researchers capable of revolutionizing disease prevention and treatment.  It now includes nearly 70 researchers from 19 institutions.
