Dr. James Crowe, Professor, Departments of Pediatrics, Pathology, Microbiology and Immunology at Vanderbilt said, “Antibodies are increasing becoming important tools in our arsenal to combat or limit epidemics. The advent of discovery tools allowing isolation of broad and potent antibodies that can be used in synergistic combinations gives us capabilities we have not had in the past.
