Due to ongoing uncertainties surrounding the current pandemic regulations, the faculty of CVNUK decided to replace this year’s physical conference with an online conference which took place on 27th November 2020. This features a variety of presentations focused on the development of a vaccine for Covid-19.
The recordings of the virtual conference are now available.

Shiranee Sriskandan is Professor of Infectious Diseases at Imperial College London and a Clinical Infectious Diseases consultant at Hammersmith Hospital which houses one of London’s main adult infectious diseases in-patient units. She leads the Gram Positive Pathogenesis research group at Imperial College within the Department of Infectious Disease, where she is a Head of Section (Adult Infectious Diseases), and MRC Centre for Molecular Bacteriology and Infection.
Her group addresses the mechanisms by which Streptococcus pyogenes causes extreme clinical phenotypes in individuals and populations, examining pathogen molecular microbiology and host immune response, working in close collaboration with colleagues in Public Health England. Recent work focusses on novel approaches to developing vaccines, with colleagues from structural and leukocyte biology, and changes in S. pyogenes that might influence vaccine targets.
