Event Registration - Parasitology Pre-Meeting Course - The Science and Business of Vaccines Against Tropical Parasitic Diseases in the COVID19 Era 20 Badges VIRTUAL PMC Parasitology.jpg
Friday, November 13, 2020
There is no vaccine for a human parasitic infection that has marketing authorization (licensure) anywhere in the world. However, we are on the verge of licensed vaccines for malaria, and are making enormous progress for diseases caused by other protozoans like leishmaniasis and helminths like hookworm. A distinguished international faculty from the biotechnology industry, the government, and academia will communicate their experience and insights regarding how to approach successful development of vaccines against parasites, including identification of the immunological mechanisms of protection and the antigenic targets of protective humoral and cellular immune responses, the construction of vaccine delivery systems (recombinant proteins, recombinant viruses, nucleotide (eg. mRNA), and whole wild type and genetically altered parasites) and achieving regulatory approval for conducting phase 1-3 clinical trials and translating from the laboratory to the clinic to assess safety and vaccin
