Science+ meeting organised by Professor Calman MacLennan and Dame Sally Davies FMedSci FRS.

Vaccines for humans and animals represent an attractive means to counter the growing global pandemic of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) but are only available against a few key bacterial pathogens. The meeting will review the science of how vaccines reduce AMR, identify research gaps in developing AMR vaccines and discuss policy in advancing development and equitable deployment of such vaccines.

The schedule of talks and speaker biographies will be available soon. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting date.

Poster session

There will be a poster session on Monday 29 April. Abstract submissions should include scientific studies on acceleration and development of vaccines against bacterial pathogens, particularly those that are of most relevance to low and middle-income countries (LMIC). We welcome submissions from Early Career Researchers (defined as individuals who do not currently hold a substantive position within their organisation) and applicants who are based in LMIC countries. Please visit the OECD website for more detail on what qualifies as an LMIC country. 

If you would like to apply to present a poster, please submit your proposed title, abstract (no more than 200 words and in the third person), author and institution list, and name of the proposed presenter to the Scientific Programmes team no later than 10am (UK time) on Monday 2 January 2024. You will be notified the week commencing Monday 15 January about the success of your application.
