    This was s good overview of the vaccine market, survey of specific needs, etc., but aside from the title, the ONLY place that DNA comes up in the slides is on slide 22 (as one option for enhanced T-cell immunity) and on slide 25 (demonstrating this for a phase I study with VGX-3100). The presentation did not tell me about the future of DNA vaccines.
