Veterinary Vaccinology Focused Workshops

Interested in holding a workshop with a specific veterinary vaccinology focus?

Attend the Veterinary Vaccinology Network Conference to network with other researchers, discuss ideas and talk to the Veterinary Vaccinology Network Steering Committee about hosting a focused workshop in your area.

A Call to all Members:

  • Please upload a photo of yourself on to your member profile
  • We are currently trying to map out the Veterinary Vaccinology Research Landscape. Please let us know if you research programmes contain PhD and postdoc students who have a veterinary vaccinology focus. We hope to target young scientists to establish whether a workshop/summer school would be useful in helping promote career development as well as gain future funding.
  • The website is in much need of photos and news, let us know if you have any news to share at
