    According to CEO Bob Bernard, Ichor will collaborate with Connie Schmaljohn, senior research scientist at USAMRIID, to evaluate an array of vaccine candidates administered using Ichor's TriGrid DNA vaccine delivery system. 

    "Ichor's TriGrid Delivery System dramatically enhances the magnitude and consistency of immune responses following DNA vaccination, both of which have a critical role in vaccine efficacy,” states Bernard.
