Now we are in the second year of the BBSRC UK Veterinary Vaccinology grant we are currently reassessing the usefulness and impact the network has, this is to see how we can continue to support our members as well as apply for future funding.
Have the newsletter and website been useful to you? Have you gained any new collaborations from attending network events (workshops/conferences)? How can the network continue to help you?
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.
Thanks again and I look forward to hearing from you,
UK Veterinary Vaccinology Network Coordinator
As part of the Veterinary Vaccinology Network Popular Science Blog Series Dr Carol McNair, Unversity of Stirling, provides an article on the uses of disease control methods against sea lice, namely Lepeophtheirus salonis that infect Salmon. The article discusses previous anti-parasite vaccine successes and the future vaccine development against sea lice.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
