US Animal Vaccinology Research Coordination Network
Come and be a part of the Network to empower and connect those conducting research in agricultural and aquacultural vaccinology! Through a new USDA NIFA initiative, the US Animal Vaccinology Research Coordination Network has been created. The inaugural meeting will be held Saturday, November 2, 2019, from 1-4pm in the Miami/ Scottsdale room. We seek enthusiastic stakeholders from across academia, government, corporate, and production communities, to help drive forward research aimed at ending animal disease through next-generation safe and effective vaccines.
To kick off the Network’s scientific program, we are pleased to have the following keynote speakers addressing key issues for veterinary vaccinology today and in the future:
- Roy Curtis (University of Florida) presenting “Animal Vaccines – Current Availability, Future Needs and Technologies to Deliver”
- Dan Rock (University of Illinois Champaign Urbana) presenting “Challenges for African swine fever vaccine development”
The Network is now establishing its early priorities and eyeing those of the future. So come and take part in our open panel discussions regarding our most critical needs, share your thoughts on our widest gaps in knowledge, and contribute ideas as to how together as a community we can target solutions. Let’s all network toward improved vaccines.
