New Approaches to Vaccines for Human and Veterinary Tropical Diseases

22/05/2016 - 26/05/2016

Human and livestock vaccines can contribute to improved human welfare and income generation by maintaining human health and meeting the demand for meat, milk and fish in developing countries. All of these factors contribute to the growing importance of improving food safety, availability and nutritional security. An important component of this Keystone Symposia meeting will be to stimulate crosstalk between the human and veterinary vaccine communities by highlighting cross-cutting technical advances and new science and knowledge from laboratory and field research. The meeting will also provide a rare opportunity for scientists from the Northern and Southern hemispheres to interact and pool resources and knowledge in the common fight against tropical diseases.

 Topics include:

  • The Challenge of Helminth Vaccines
  • Human and Bovine Tuberculosis
  • Vaccination Strategies for Malaria
  • Vaccination Strategies for East Coast Fever in Cattle
  • New Approaches to Viral Vaccines
  • Understanding Immune Responses to Inform Vaccine Design
  • Profiling Immune Responses to Infection and Vaccines
  • Synthetic Genomics-Based Vaccines
  • Plus four workshops
