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 enquiries@vetvaccnet.ac.uk
