A major goal of the Louisiana Vaccine Center is to promote the development of our research with the aim of clinical translation and commercialization. To further enhance our support of center faculty in areas of research collaboration and commercialization, we have established internship and fellowship programs, typically for law and business students and graduates, to perform in several areas including: aiding in the establishment of a database provides a single view of all available biotechnology resources in the area and providing LVC members with tailored one on one assistance in conjunction with the Technology Transfer Office to identify potential commercial opportunities.
