CDC Co-Sponsors Twelfth Annual Conference on Vaccine Research

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and 11 other national and international agencies and organizations will collaborate with the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases in sponsoring the Twelfth Annual Conference on Vaccine Research, April 27-29, 2009, at the Marriott Waterfront Hotel, Baltimore.

The conference is one of the largest scientific forums devoted exclusively to the research and development of all vaccines and related technologies for prevention and treatment of disease through immunization. It brings together the diverse fields of human and veterinary vaccinology to encourage cross-fertilization of ideas and approaches among researchers otherwise focused on specific diseases or methods.

Twenty invited speakers at five symposia will discuss vaccine safety, immunization programs for global health, synergy between veterinary and human vaccine development, and tuberculosis and malaria vaccines. Six oral sessions and posters will include presentations selected through peer review from among submitted abstracts.

A travel grant program to subsidize attendees from countries with limited resources has an application deadline of Dec. 7, 2008. Deadline for online submission of general abstracts is Jan. 26, 2009. Abstracts from eligible authors may be designated for consideration for the Maurice R. Hilleman Early-Stage Career Investigator Award, which provides $10,000 for research expenses and a travel stipend and registration for the 2010 conference.
