Join us to present your own research, as well as form new relationships with potential collaborators!

The following quotes are from attendees that have visited previous Vaccine Congresses.

“Really nice mix across spectrum of vaccine research from hesitancy and uptake to developing new vaccines - haven't come across that mix at other conferences.”

“This meeting was very well organized, professional, and timely. Relevant topics and state-of-the-art methods were presented by high caliber speakers. Multicultural attendance, panel and round table discussions, frequent breaks, provision of meals, and poster sessions allowed for considerable opportunity to network, deliberate, and make plans for moving science forward.”

“Great scientific content, easy to talk to people active in this field.”

“The Vaccine Congress brings together a wealth of global expertise, from basic science to service delivery, in one of the most important and powerful areas of contemporary international public health. It is instructive and inspirational in equal measure.”

Sebastian TaylorHead of Global Operations, Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, London, UK

“The Vaccine Congress has an exciting agenda that will be of interest to all vaccinologists.”

Daniel SalmonJohn Hopkins University, USA
