Organised by Professor Adrian Hill and Professor Brian Greenwood FRS

Recent advances in knowledge of pathogen genomics and of innate immunity provide exceptional opportunities for the development of new vaccines. Development of effective vaccines against some major killers such as HIV, malaria and tuberculosis has proved challenging but progress is being made and many new vaccines have reached the stage of clinical trials. Development of vaccines against some non- infectious diseases is also making progress. This meeting will review opportunities to design, develop and deploy the new vaccines urgently needed to meet global health priorities.
