Global bacterial vaccinology network launch meeting

The inaugural Network Meeting of BactiVac will be held on 26 and 27 February 2018.

The BactiVac network was established in August 2017 following the award of £2.2m funding under the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) Networks in Vaccines Research and Development initiative.

This funding will support the establishment of a global bacterial vaccinology network, BactiVac, to accelerate the development of vaccines against bacterial infections relevant to low and middle-income countries. The inaugural meeting will focus on sharing BactiVac’s vision, objectives and strategy, and will provide network members with the opportunity to shape these further.

Registration is now open for the event, which takes place at the University of Birmingham, B15 2RT. Full details are available here
