Notice to Readers: 11th Annual Conference on Vaccine Research

CDC and 11 other national and international agencies and organizations will collaborate with the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases in sponsoring the 11th Annual Conference on Vaccine Research: Basic Science, Product Development, and Clinical and Field Studies, to be held May 5--7, 2008, at the Marriott Waterfront Hotel, Baltimore, Maryland. The conference is the largest scientific forum devoted exclusively to the research and development of vaccines and related technologies for prevention and treatment of disease through immunization, bringing together human and veterinary vaccinology researchers. Twenty-two invited speakers will appear at five special symposia on innate immunity, cutaneous vaccination, adjuvants, universal influenza vaccination, and recently licensed vaccines. Six oral sessions and posters will include presentations selected through peer review from submitted abstracts. Eligible abstracts will be considered 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 2009 conference.

Deadline for submission of abstracts is February 15, 2008.
