A Vaccine for Leishmaniasis?
Earlier today, 55 attendees, from 27 organisations in 21 countries attended the first event in VALIDATE's "A Vaccine for" seminar series, in which leading experts provide an overview of the state of vaccine research for VAIDATE’s focus pathogens. Prof Mitali Chatterjee and Dr Mohamed Osman provided an overview and update on the current state of research into vaccines for a disease that causes up to 40,000 deaths annually. Mitali and Mohamed also spoke to attendees in a very engaging Q&A session.
The video will be on YouTube soon.
The next Seminar - A Vaccine for Melioidosis? - 18 May 2022
The next seminar in the series will be "A Vaccine for Melioidosis?". Prof Chiranjay Mukhopadhyay and Dr Somasish Ghosh Dastidar
will discuss the prospects for a vaccine for Melioidosis, the disease caused by a bacterium, Burkholderia pseudomallei, which is found across tropical and semi-tropical regions worldwide and causes up to 89,000 death a year. All are welcome, but the seminar will be especially interesting to vaccine researchers who do not study melioidosis.
The event will take place at 13:00 am BST, 18 May 2022 and you can register on our website - www.validate-network.org/event/avf-melioidosis
