As a result of their vaccine investigations on mechanism of attachment of pathogens to lung epithelial cells they have identified a number of novel bacteria adhesins which are potential vaccine candidates. They have identified vaccine against Burkholderia cepacia complex Burkholderia pseudomallei the causative agent of the tropical disease melioidois and verotoxigenic E.coli.
