This is all **GREAT** news.... but I'm also waiting to hear of a pre-clinical study results on MRSA..... MRSA is also a huge health issue... Relatives and acquaintances have been exposed to MRSA,... and hospitals have had to bring out the "BIG GUNS" vaccines to try and combat MRSA... and there are reportedly strains of it that health organizations are unable to treat..... so I'm guessing INO may be researching the various strains of MRSA to develop a consensus SYNCON vaccine.... That would be just one more accolade to thrust INO into the limelight!!!

Also any news for Ebola/Marburg viruses, smallpox or othe potential terrorism dangers, for which INOVIO is thrifty to make announcements often...
News and updates about its collaborations and received grants from state institutions or other institutions like PATH Malaria, come out from time to time, as well.
IMO, I believe in 2013 news about a collaboration with a big pharma will come out also. A month ago Dr. Kim stated that INOVIO is in late stage discussions with big pharmas, I believe will be a deal in the next months. But, let's keep it in mind as a possibility only.
