The annual Cambridge Immunology Forum, supported by the British Society for Immunology's Cambridge Immunology Group, will be held at Queens' College Cambridge on 9 September 2021.
The 2021 meeting will focus on the fascinating area of vaccinology. With the production, distribution and effectiveness of vaccines being the centre of sometimes fierce debate in the past year, they are now a major focus of scientific organisations, policy makers and the public worldwide. This meeting aims to bring together world leaders in infectious diseases and vaccine development to provide a platform for scientific discussion, collaboration and the promotion of this particularly relevant field of research, to address not only the current pandemic but also the many infectious diseases that continue to be a global concern.
Keynote speakers include:
- Dr Galit Alter (Harvard Medical School)
- Dr Nicholas Croucher (Imperial College London)
- Prof Adam Cunningham (University of Birmingham)
- Prof Gordon Dougan (University of Cambridge)
- Prof Jan Holmgren (University of Gothenburg)
- Prof Akiko Iwasaki (Yale University School of Medicine)
- Prof Paul Kellam (Imperial College London)
- Dr Teresa Lambe (University of Oxford)
- Prof Andrew Pollard (University of Oxford)
- Dr Firdausi Qadri (ICDDR Bangladesh)
After what will be an excellent opportunity for learning, discussions and networking, participants will have the chance to socialise over a formal dinner held at the College.
