EC flag

ANTIDotE is a consortium of 7 European research institutes funded by the European Commssion to investigate anti-tick vaccines. Our objective is to identify and characterize tick salivary gland proteins involved in tick feeding and tick-borne pathogen transmission, and to use this knowledge to develop and assess anti-tick vaccines to prevent multiple human tick-borne diseases.

 

 The Group

The ANTIDotE consortium consists of 7 European participants, and an advisory board with 7 partners with different backgrounds and networks. This enables ANTIDotE to achieve its groundbreaking objectives.
