iCubed welcomed some of the world’s vaccine elite to Providence last week as part of its 5th Annaul Vaccine Renaissance Conference. Attendees heard from dozens of speakers who covered a wide range of topics including biodefense, AIDS, infections affecting both humans and animals, and delivery vehicles.

During the conference University of Rhode Island biotech student Lori Darling was awarded this year’s Polly Matzinger Fearless Scientist Award. Each year iCubed gives this award to a woman who has come into the field of science later in her career. Lori spent several years in the manufacturing industry before returning to school to pursue a degree in clinical laboratory sciences.

The conference also marked the third year anniversary of iCubed.
