Department/Program & College Description: Iowa is adopting a more aggressive, formalized approach to organizing for economic development in the bioscience sector, focusing on four technology platforms: biobased chemicals, digital and precision agriculture, vaccines and immunotherapeutics and medical devices.  The Iowa Innovation Corporation (IIC; www.iicorp.com ), a public-private partnership formed to promote economic development in the state, is fostering development of robust cohesive innovation ecosystems within each of the platforms. Success will require an evergreen pipeline of commercially oriented innovations and university engagement is central to delivering on this need. This position, focusing on the vaccines and Immunotherapeutics, will be central to the success of this strategy.

Iowa is uniquely positioned to be a leader in R&D-driven innovation and economic growth in the area of animal vaccines, with a particular focus on vaccines used in food-producing animals. This is a result of the unique confluence of vaccine and animal health companies, USDA research and regulatory facilities, and ISU and University of Iowa’s research expertise and capabilities in the basic sciences, veterinary medicine and novel R&D approaches. This triangulation of three core assets provides the State of Iowa with a signature base of science and technology capacity around which to further build a cluster of R&D and production economic activity. Additionally, significant research and development infrastructure exists at ISU for this platform, including the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, the Nanovaccine Institute, the National Institute of Antimicrobial Resistance Research and Education, the Center for Food Security and Public Health, and the Institute for International Cooperation in Animal Biologics.

This position will reside at ISU, capitalizing on these outstanding research strengths in vaccines and immunotherapeutics. Founded in 1858, Iowa State University is the largest public university in the state with nearly 35,000 students.
