You are very warmly invited to attend the Edinburgh Infectious Diseases Vaccinology Workshop to be held on Wednesday 8 October 2014 at the Moredun Research Institute, Pentland Science Park.

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 excellent speakers from different perspectives in both human and animal vaccinology - researchers, industrial representatives and funders - to talk about their work and interests.  We have 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.

With very best wishes,


Rick Maizels, Institute of Immunology and Infection Research, and

Gary Entrican, Moredun Research Institute
