Avidea’s lead program is a personalized cancer vaccine (PCV) based on patient-specific peptide antigens linked to polymers that self-assemble into nanoparticles with precise, reproducible characteristics (e.g., particle size & peptide loading) irrespective of the underlying peptide antigen composition. Prior to joining Avidea, Geoffrey was a post-doctoral fellow with Robert Seder at the Vaccine Research Center at the National Institutes of Health. Geoffrey earned a B.S in chemistry from Elon University and a PhD (“D.Phil.”) in Biomedical Engineering from Oxford University in England.
