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.
Prof Adam Cunningham is Professor of Functional Immunity at the University of Birmingham and Co-Director of the Bacterial Vaccines (BactiVac) Network. This GCRF/MRC funded global network links and supports researchers to accelerate the development and use of vaccines against bacterial infections. Adam’s own research examines how bacterial infections can harm us and how the immune system can protect us against infection, both naturally and after vaccination. His vaccine research focuses on how we induce and maintain responses to vaccines, how we can improve the protection they confer and how we can make vaccines work more effectively in the most vulnerable groups.
