Thanks you to all those who have contributed to the network in this last year. As Professor Jacqui Hunter acknowledged at the UK Veterinary Vaccinology Conference 2016, this is your network so please do voice your opinion.

Voice your opinion on Genetically Modified Vaccine Research 

It has been brought to the UK Veterinary Vaccinology Network Steering group attention that many face issues within research on Genetically Modified Vaccines. The network sees this as an important issue and therefore numerous network activities in 2016 will play host to Geneticially Modified Vaccines as a theme.

Presently, the network is collating information to form a position paper, if you would like to contribute any opinion or information please email
