IAmA Stephen L. Hoffman the CEO of Sanaria Inc. Yesterday we reported in Science magazine that our malaria vaccine completely protected volunteers against malaria! AMA!
My short bio: My name is Stephen Hoffman. I am the CEO of Sanaria Inc. Yesterday, Science published an article which reported that our vaccine, the Sanaria® PfSPZ Vaccine, completely protected the six volunteers who received the highest dosage of the vaccine (100% protection). There are now many questions as to next steps and how long it will take to have the vaccine widely available. I will be answering questions in this AMA today from 1-4 PM EST. Ask me anything!
