Engineers could aid bird flu vaccine effort

Interesting stuff…. time to break bottlenecks in vaccine production!

Avian flu experts appealed on Monday to engineers — a group largely left out of flu preparedness efforts — to come up with potential breakthroughs for speeding vaccine production in case of a deadly pandemic.

The hope is that engineers could use their expertise in areas such as assembly lines and production techniques to help vaccine developers jump hurdles.

Let's hope they use lean methods rather than saying that they need bigger batches!
