Event Details

The Edinburgh Infectious Diseases Vaccinology Workshop aims to bring researchers together from across Edinburgh to discuss the exciting work that is being done here, and to explore new avenues of research for the future.  

Edinburgh Infectious Diseases has significant breadth and depth of expertise in the field of Vaccinology.  We have invited a range of speakers from different perspectives in both human and animal vaccinology - researchers, industrial representatives and funders - and also allowed plenty of time for discussion during the programme to help ensure that we generate tangible results from the day.  A draft programme for the day is given below.


We very much look forward to welcoming you to the Moredun Institute on 8 October 2014 for what should be a most enjoyable and productive day.
