Vaccines and vaccination are major topics in research and public health that receive wide public and political attention. This meeting will highlight recent progress in the areas of vaccines and vaccination against viral, bacterial and parasitic infectious diseases as well as cancer. The symposium will feature distinguished national and international speakers.
Young investigators are particularly invited to participate and present posters during two prominent poster walks. The organizing committee recommends PhD students and postdocs from in and outside LUMC to submit abstracts and present their research at this occasion. Though posters preferably should focus on topics relevant to the mission of the Center of Infectious Diseases, they can extend beyond the scope of the symposium itself. Abstracts and posters will be evaluated by a scientific committee that will award three poster prizes at the end of the program.
Further information on program and registration will follow soon.
