WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WISH) – Two Purdue researchers say sweet corn could make animal vaccines safer.
Harm HogenEsch and Yuan Yao are creating bio-material from a variety of sweet corn to use as an additive, of sorts, in animal vaccines.
Yao said the research is being conducted on a naturally occurring variety of corn.
HogenEsch says the research will continue, “We are looking to work with industry partners to do more extensive and expensive research to include more animals and further develop the technology.”
