The VALIDATE Network - Vaccine development for complex intracellular neglected pathogens
MSF Scientific Days 2019
Dates: 9-10 May 2019
Location: London, UK
Pete Masters is in his third MSF incarnation as Medical Innovation Advisor in the Manson Unit at MSF UK (having previously been Digital Content Manager and Missing Maps Project Coordinator). He is looking for interesting conversations around innovation process, field challenges and how we might solve them, team dynamics, open culture, maps and carpentry.
On 9 and 10 May, we will kick off the sixteenth annual MSF Scientific Days programme in London. This event, hosted at the Royal Society of Medicine, will be followed by linked events in New Delhi, India on 8 July and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in August, and will be broadcasted live in English and French.
Last year, more than 11,000 people from 102 countries participated via the livestream. This included guests at satellite events hosted by academic institutions and other partners in Lebanon, Australia and India, and many staff from our field teams.
With the help of expert panellists, we will examine how innovations in tech and data can deliver on their promise to provide value for people in humanitarian and medical crises, while maintaining an ethical, patient-centred approach.
