Due to ongoing uncertainties surrounding the current pandemic regulations, the faculty of CVNUK have decided to replace this year’s physical conference with an online webinar. It will feature a variety of talks, focusing largely on specific Covid-19 related topics.
The updated timetable of the day will be released closer to the time.
Dr Tom Darton completed his DPhil in the Oxford Vaccine Group in 2014, working on human challenge studies to investigate the host-pathogen interactions occurring during typhoid and paratyphoid infection. He explored how these models could be used to evaluate vaccine efficacy and to accelerate diagnostic and therapeutic development. This work led to further multicentre studies in endemic regions of Asia and Africa, and current research interests investigating the drivers of AMR in LMIC settings and determining the role of vaccines and diagnostics in moderating antimicrobial use and defining the ethical use of human challenge studies.
