Dr Rob Lambkin-Williams, hVIVO (formerly Retroscreen Virology) Executive Scientific Advisor, will be speaking at the International Conference on Flu, at the North Shore Conference Centre, Skokie, Chicago USA, held from the 8 – 10 June 2015.
The three day conference, the theme of which is “Advanced Research in Flu”, anticipates the participation of experts from various cross disciplines including virologists, immunologists, microbiologists, epidemiologists, doctors, public health planners, pharmacologists, computational biologists, and those in applied fields conducting influenza related research.
Dr Lambkin-Williams will be making an oral presentation on Day two (9th June) entitled “Accelerating Influenza Research; Vaccines, Antivirals, Immunodulators and Monoclonal Antibodies. The Manufacture of a New H3N2 Virus for the Human Viral Challenge Model.”
Dr Lambkin-Williams commented: “By working together to make sure any new influenza strain is constantly monitored, the scientific community can help prevent a lethal influenza pandemic and also help reduce the yearly death toll of seasonal flu. Our own pioneering hVIVO human challenge model enables scientists to understand the behaviour of influenza in real time. From healthy volunteers experiencing a pre-determined sickness episode (often including investigational therapeutic treatment) to the recovery back to healthy state again, our insight and data is invaluable. I am looking forward to a lively three days helping to advance our knowledge in flu research.”
