Vaccine Affinity Group

The Vaccine Affinity Group is an active group of immunologists who come together from different organizations across the UK. Our different research interests cover a variety of subjects including animal vaccines, humans vaccines, in-vivo animal modelling, clinical trials, advances in transcriptomics and immunological techniques. We hold one or half day meetings each year and aim to have committee meetings three or four times a year.
