Vaxess Technologies

Vaxess Technologies, Inc. is a company started by a team of four graduate students from Harvard developing a suite of vaccines on the MIMIX sustained dermal delivery platform that combines high temperature stability, improved efficacy, simplified delivery to improve global vaccine access. Students Michael Schrader, Livio Valenti, Kathryn Kosuda, Patrick Ho started Vaxess in December 2011, based on a technology created by David Kaplan and Fiorenzo Omenetto. Schrader graduated with an MBA from Harvard Business School in 2012. Valenti attended the John F. Kennedy School of Government. Kosuda had been a Harvard postdoctoral fellow in chemistry, Patrick Ho had earned a J. D in 2012. In 2012, Vaxess was awarded $25,000 from Harvard Business School for Harvard's Business Plan Contest in the Business Ventures Track. Vaxess Technologies was a semi-finalist for MIT's $100K Entrepreneurship Competition in the Life Sciences section. In 2012, it won the Harvard President's Challenge in the Global Health section and was awarded $70,000.

The company was selected as a finalist for two 2013 MassTLC Awards, Start-Up to Watch and Innovative Technology of the Year: Healthcare/Life Sciences. In May 2013, Vaxess received $3.75M in funding from Norwich Ventures and an undisclosed amount of money from angel investor Jeffrey Walker. In August 2013, the company announced that it would be moving out of Harvard's Innovation Lab to a new location at LabCentral in Cambridge. In December 2013, the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center awarded $1.5M to local startups. Vaxess received $1M of that amount, the most that the MLSC's Accelerator Loan Program will lend to one organization. Vaxess's CEO Michael Schrader was quoted as saying, "The $1 million Accelerator loan will enable Vaxess to grow the company’s internal R&D capabilities and deliver heat-stable vaccines to patients around the world sooner."In January 2014, co-founder Livio Valenti was named by Forbes's 30 Under 30 in Science & Healthcare for his work with Vaxess. In February 2014, Vaxess added George Siber, M.

D. to their organization as the chair of their Scientific Advisory Board. Siber served as the EVP and CSO of Wyeth Vaccines, he played a role in bringing Prevnar to market. In April 2014, Vaxess announced that Thomas Monath, MD, Russell Middaugh, PhD. would join the company's scientific advisory board. Monath being an expert in the field of vaccinology and Middaugh being an expert in the fields of in the fields of biophysical chemistry and pharmaceutical formulation. In February 2015, Verizon announced that Vaxess had won one of the $1M Verizon Powerful Answers Awards. Verizon issued $6 million is prizes to 12 different organizations across 4 categories. Vaxess won first place above HopOn and Matternet. In March 2017, Vaxess announced the receipt of $6M in grants from The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to advance both an inactivated polio vaccine as well as a measles-rubella vaccine on the company's MIMIX platform; the grants will fund development of both the MIMIX platform as well as these two specific indications over the next two years.

Vaxess's business plan is based around a technology developed by Tufts University Professors Fiorenzo Omenetto and David Kaplan. The technology uses a silk-derived protein called fibroin to stabilize vaccines so that they can be shipped and stored without refrigeration, eliminating the need for the cold chain. Vaxess is working with vaccine manufacturers to develop heat-stable vaccines and targeting a product launch by 2019. Official website

Fishing Creek (North Branch Susquehanna River tributary)

Fishing Creek is a 29.98-mile long tributary of the Susquehanna River in Columbia County, Pennsylvania, in the United States. It joins the Susquehanna River near the census-designated place of Rupert and the town of Bloomsburg; the watershed has an area of 385 square miles. Nomadic Native Americans arrived in the lower reaches of Fishing Creek around 8000 BCE, some were spending winters in the upper reaches of the valley by 3000 to 2000 BCE. In the past few centuries, the Fishing Creek area has been home to many industries and dams, it drains parts of five Pennsylvania counties: Columbia, Sullivan and Lycoming. The creek's main tributaries include Hemlock Creek, Little Fishing Creek, Green Creek, Huntington Creek, West Branch Fishing Creek, East Branch Fishing Creek. Public recreation activities include canoeing and fishing; the creek is known for its trout population, which includes brook and rainbow trout. Northern hardwood trees and ruffed grouse live in the surrounding area; some stretches of Fishing Creek contain significant amounts of algae because of leaking septic systems in the watershed.

The area around the tributary West Creek is the least habitable part of the Fishing Creek area, according to a 2011 study. The water quality of Fishing Creek can vary, its pH ranges from 4.9 to 8.5, while the concentration of dissolved oxygen ranges from 5 to 17.5 mg per liter. The creek's average discharge is 615 cubic feet per second. Fishing Creek's source is 920 feet above sea level in Sugarloaf Township, south of State Game Lands Number 13 and Pennsylvania Route 118, where East Branch and West Branch Fishing Creeks of southern Sullivan County meet in northern Columbia County; the creek heads south with a few bends through Sugarloaf Township for about 2 miles. In the southern part of the township, it turns east for less than a mile and picks up Coles Creek—its first named tributary after the confluence of the East and West Branches, it empties into Fishing Creek from the northeast, 26.34 miles upstream of its mouth. Around this point, Fishing Creek turns south into Benton Township and starts flowing parallel to Pennsylvania Route 487.

Here it flows four or five miles, including about a mile in Benton, where West Creek parallels Fishing Creek and empties into it from the west just south of Benton and 21.72 miles upstream of the mouth. Fishing Creek crosses under Pennsylvania Route 239 and continues south, passing through the community of Maple Grove and flowing into Fishing Creek Township and Stillwater. In Stillwater, Raven Creek empties into the creek from 18.62 miles above the mouth. About 1.5 to 2 miles south, the creek turns and picks up Huntington Creek, flows past the communities of Zaners and Pealertown. The mouth of Huntington Creek is 15.1 miles above the mouth of Fishing Creek. Upon leaving Fishing Creek Township, about 1 mile after picking up Huntington Creek, Fishing Creek flows southwest past Knob Mountain and into Orange Township, it passes near the northern edge of Knob Mountain 2 miles downstream by Orangeville, makes a 90° turn to the northwest. Shortly after this turn it turns west. After some distance, it turns south again, passing a gauging station.

From this point, the creek flows along the border between Orange and Mount Pleasant Townships for 2 miles. While on the border between these two townships, it flows past Kocher Park; the creek stays nearer to the western edge of the river valley than the eastern edge at this point. Near Lightstreet, it turns west into Mount Pleasant Township, passing several lakes and the Turkey Hill Oxbow. Upon entering Mount Pleasant Township, the creek stops paralleling Pennsylvania Route 487 and flows in the vicinity of Interstate 80 for 2 to 3 miles. Along the border of Mount Pleasant Township and Bloomsburg, Fishing Creek picks up Little Fishing Creek at a distance of 3.86 miles upstream of its mouth before turning south and paralleling the western border of Bloomsburg. As it flows between Bloomsburg and Fernville, it turns westward, paralleling U. S. Route 11, picks up Hemlock Creek, 1.52 miles above the mouth. Shortly after picking up Hemlock Creek, Fishing Creek turns southeast under U. S. Route 11 and flows parallel to Pennsylvania Route 42 for over 1 mile, picking up Montour Run from the right empties 0.72 miles into the Susquehanna between Bloomsburg and Rupert.

The Rupert Covered Bridge No. 56 crosses the main stem of the creek. Its mouth is 456 feet above sea level—464 feet lower than, 29.98 miles downstream of, the source. Fishing Creek has numerous minor ones; the major tributaries are Hemlock Creek, Little Fishing Creek, Green Creek, Huntington Creek, the East and West Branch Fishing Creeks. West Branch Fishing Creek flows east into Fishing Creek. East Branch Fishing Creek is a tributary that starts on North Mountain in Sullivan County and is 4.4 miles long. Huntington Creek starts in State Game Lands number 57 and heads southwest through Luzerne County until it reaches the north side of Knob Mountain, which it runs parallel to until it merges with Fishing Creek. Huntington Creek drains the northeastern parts of the Fishing Creek watershed. Four covered.
