Edinburgh Infectious Diseases Vaccinology Workshop - Moredun Research Institute, 8 October 2014

The Edinburgh Infectious Diseases Vaccinology Workshop in October 2014 brought 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 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.
