Antigen Discovery and Proteomics of Host Response Workshop

18th November 2015

In collaboration with the University of Liverpool, the UK Veterinary Vaccinology Network are happy to announce the first network Workshop

Antigen Discovery and Proteomics of Host Response

The One Day Workshop hosted on 18th November at the Foresight Centre, the University of Liverpool will include a range of presentations focusing on antigen discovery and the proteomics of host response, providing complementary perspectives of both research of the antigen and host response.

This workshop is designed to educate researchers in the latest updates on antigen discovery and proteomics of host response as well as the tools and technologies to be able to conduct such research.

Co-hosted by Professor Rob Beynon and Professor Julian Hiscox, the day will include a tour of the Centre of Proteomic Research and the Centre of Genomic Research
