francisco_diazDr. Diaz-Mitoma is leading research into an HIV vaccine that holds tremendous promise. Variation Biotechnologies (VBI) was incorporated based on the development of its innovative Variosite’ technology, which can efficiently develop vaccines against many viral diseases. The Company has focused its efforts on HIV. Located within the CHEO Research Institute and with separate offices in Gatineau, VBI has recently been named one of Canada’s top ten life sciences investment opportunities by an international panel of venture capital investors brought together by the Ottawa Life Sciences Council. In partnership with scientific founders at the University of California and Harvard, VBI is based on a technology poised to challenge how vaccines are developed for some of the world’s most devastating diseases. Dr. Diaz-Mitoma was able to help bring their vision to fruition as an established and recognized researcher within the CHEO Research Institute working on Hepatitis C and HIV vaccine approaches.
