Are you interested in showcasing your vaccinology research to the general public?

Do you have some hands-on activities that would attract those of all ages to learn more about the research you undertake?

A highly prestigious opportunity has arisen for UK Veterinary Vaccinology Network members to inform, inspire and involve the public in the science research you undertake.   

In collaboration with The Jenner Institute and The Pirbright Institute, The UK Veterinary Vaccinology Network are sponsoring the Times Cheltenham Science Festival. The collaboration will be exhibiting at the festival and the network would like to extend the opportunity to members of the network and their research groups to showcase their work.
