COVID-19 Vaccines to the Rescue?
April 24, 2020 @ 8:00 am - May 1, 2020 @ 5:00 pm BSTFree
This World Immunisation Week, join us for a series of webinars hosted by LSHTM Vaccine Centre between Friday 24 April to Friday 1 May 2020.
At the end of World Immunisation Week and with the COVID epidemic occupying everyone’s mind, we have put together a special session involving academics from LSHTM to discuss the current progress towards a vaccine for the novel COVID-19 virus.
They will introduce you to a new tool published by the Vaccine Centre to track progress of vaccine candidates currently in the pipeline for COVID-19 and discuss the latest research and modelling done on the impact of the COVID-19 response on routine immunisation programmes in LMICs.
We talk to experts about what we can learn from the response to Ebola and the related vaccine development and trials and how these lessons can be applied to the context of the current epidemic.
The session will be introduced by Professor Beate Kampmann, the Director of LSHTM Vaccine Centre.
