FruitVaccine is developing an orally-administered, fruit-based vaccine against hRSV, which can be eaten, as well as oral-drop vaccines for infants. The startup reeived the I-Start Award, as well as an award through the Small Business Development Center for the city of Champaign. Indu’s advice for those starting out? “Listen to your inner-self carefully to determine your passionate desires and the marketable niche you want to enter.”
