Announcement: 13th Annual Conference on Vaccine Research

The Thirteenth Annual Conference on Vaccine Research, the largest scientific forum devoted exclusively to the research and development of vaccines and related technologies for prevention and treatment of disease through immunization, will be held April 26--28, 2010, at the Bethesda North Marriott & Conference Center Hotel in Bethesda, Maryland. The conference brings together the diverse fields of human and veterinary vaccinology to encourage collaboration and multidisciplinary approaches among disease-specific and methodologic experts.

Vaccines, poverty and world hunger, pandemic influenza, live veterinary vaccines, molecular approaches to vaccine delivery, and novel adjuvants are among topics scheduled for discussion during the conference. The deadline for online submission of general abstracts is January 4, 2010. 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 2011 conference.

The conference is being sponsored by the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID), in collaboration with CDC and 12 other national and international agencies and organizations. Applications for travel grants to subsidize attendees from countries with limited resources must be submitted by December 7, 2009.
