Young Career Veterinary Vaccinology Network Steering Committee
The Network is currently looking to set up a young scientist steering committee for Veterinary Vaccinology. This will be a forum to discuss Veterinary Vaccinology issues as well as the needs of young scienstists and how the Veterinary Vaccinology Network may be able to help support future careers.  Please email to show your interest in becoming a part of the Young Scientist Veterinary Vaccinology Steering Committee.

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
