A group of Boise State researchers is hoping West Nile is just the start of their viral exposure.
The team recently received $940,000 of federal funding to find a vaccine against the West Nile virus, which caused the deaths of 23 people in Idaho in 2006.
The plan of action involves using recent advancements in biotechnology with the relatively new field of nanotechnology to develop an effective vaccine.
