Meet BacVax: a PBC startup working on a vaccine to prevent ear infections in young children.

Dr. Terrence Stull’s company, called BacVax, is developing a vaccine to prevent ear infections in young children.

BacVax is a University of Arizona spinoff founded by Stull, former senior vice president of research at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

BacVax uses molecular genetics to study Haemophilus influenzae, a common cause of ear infections. Stull moved his startup from the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix to 850 PBC on the Phoenix Bioscience Core in July 2021, noting the building is a prime location to grow and expand.
