The Human and Veterinary Vaccinology course is a five-day course which covers all aspects of vaccinology.
The course is designed as a stand-alone module or can be taken as an add-on to the Clinical Vaccine Development and Biomanufacturing module.
The course includes contributions from world-leading experts. In the past these have included:
- Prof David Salisbury (Director of Immunisation, UK Department of Health)
- Dr Vasee Moorthy (Department of Immunisation, Vaccines & Biologicals, WHO - World Health Organisation)
- Prof Andrew Pollard (Director, Oxford Vaccine Group, University of Oxford)
- Dr Laura Martin (Development Project Leader, Novartis Vaccines Institute for Global Health)
- Prof Adrian Hill (Director, Jenner Institute, University of Oxford)
- Prof Paul Fine (Professor of Communicable Disease Epidemiology, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine)
- Prof Bryan Charleston (Director, Pirbright Institute)
The Programme provides state-of-the-art teaching in both human and veterinary vaccinology, drawing on the experience of Oxford University, the world-renowned Jenner Institute based in Oxford, The Pirbright Institute (formerly the Institute for Animal Health - IAH) and our partners in industry.
Vaccinology is a cross-disciplinary subject and the most exciting developments in vaccinology have occurred when people from diverse research, business and medical backgrounds have used their skills to collectively tackle problems in vaccine design, manufacture and distribution.
Our course participants will therefore reflect the diversity of the subject and be from business, academic, clinical and veterinary backgrounds. The course will be of particular interest to research scientists, programme managers, clinical trial coordinators, nurses, physicians and veterinarians. The course will be accessible to people already working in the field or to those who wish to enter the field.
