Vaccinology Course 2017
The CVD's bi-annual Vaccinology course (PREV 627) started 23 January 2017. The course consists of a series of lectures on a variety of vaccinology topics including:
- Strategies for vaccine development
- Pre-clinical evaluation
- Human clinical trials
- Current immunization schedules
- Economics of vaccine development and public health intervention
Special lectures will address highly debated issues of current interest such as vaccine safety, public perception of vaccines, and emerging infectious diseases (e.g., Ebola and Zika). Lectures are presented by experts in the field recruited from industry, academia, and government.
Classes will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9:00 am to 10:00 AM in the HSF II Auditorium, unless otherwise specified.
This is a unique opportunity to acquire up-to-date knowledge in the field of vaccinology. A certificate of training will be provided to those who attend regularly.
Scientific communication is an essential component of vaccinology. Communication must be accurate and sufficiently interesting to engage readers.
Each student wrote a blog, on a topic of interest, with the goal of informing the technical and lay community. Click the link to read the best submittal.
