    Sponsor a protein, a pathogen, or a vaccine. We will discuss the concept with you and work with you to create an Immune Defense game level that demonstrate the key function of the protein, the key virulence factor of the pathogen, or the advantage to be had with the vaccination of your choice. Design will need to be compatible with our project, and final design decisions will be ours, to make sure the project remains feasible!
    Development of these levels will require 6 month development of a beta and 6 months of polish until release.
    Suggested "pathogens" are AIDS, Ebola, Bird Flu, Anthrax, allergies, auto-immune disease, cancers, .... Our game is designed to demonstrate numerous cellular conditions. So put us to the test!
