Strategies for vaccines for the 21st century

10th December 2014


Vaccines hold the power to liberate humanity from the threat of infectious disease, and the irradiation of Smallpox is just one example of a successful vaccination programme. In the face of the Ebola crisis, an expert panel led by Wadham Fellow, Susan Lea, discussed the challenges facing scientists, drug manufacturers and governments in the creation, testing, manufacture and adoption of new vaccines.

Professor Susan Lea was speaking at the Oxford Martin School alongside Professor Christoph Tang, Co-Director, Oxford Martin Programme on Vaccines, Professor Jeffrey Almond, Former Vice President and Head of Discovery Research and External R&D at Sanofi Pasteur and Dr Ian Feavers, Head of the Division of Bacteriology, National Institute for Biological Standards and Control (NIBSC).
