VALIDATE Industry Seminar: Addressing Pathogen and Human Diversity

Our next seminar with VALIDATE’s Industry Partners will be with Graham Clarke, Chair of immBio, a company developing next-generation vaccines against serious infectious disease. Graham will talk about how variable human immune responses highlights the need in vaccinology to identify and develop technologies that are able to address diversity as well as immBio’s focus on a multiple-protein approach. This seminar is open to all, so please share details with any colleagues who might be interested.

The event will take place on Wednesday, 27 April 2021 at 14:00 BST and you can register online
