IVW 2017, 19-21 April 2017, CHUV/University of Lausanne, Lausanne, Switzerland

Dr Rob Lambkin-Williams, hVIVO’s Executive Scientific Advisor, will be making two oral presentations at IVW 2017. The event takes place between 19th and 21st April 2017 in the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois, Lausanne, Switzerland.

Dr Lambkin-Williams will be presenting on Wednesday 19th and Friday 21st, as well as moderating a panel discussion on the Friday too. The event sponsors include hVIVO.

The details and schedules of the presentations are:

  • ‘Human virus challenge models, from one century to the next: What have we learned?” (Wednesday 19th April, Session III)
  • ‘What is needed for the ultimate influenza vaccine?’ (Friday 21st April, session 9)
  • Moderator for panel discussion: “Formulation, Vaccination & Reactogenicity” (Friday 21st April, session 10)

The IVW series is an international forum for world renowned experts in the field of influenza vaccines and related issues (adjuvants/delivery/vaccination strategies) to report on the latest data and trends associated with current and new influenza vaccines/technologies and their availability/delivery/implementation worldwide.

This year’s IVW 2017 event is the 6th in this valuable series, and Dr Lambkin-Williams commented: “This global conference specifically focuses on influenza vaccines and the desperate need to improve them. The vaccine has failed twice in the last decade. I will be presenting data about novel vaccines while discussing the concept of the “ideal Universal Influenza vaccine” with my colleagues. And at the end of the conference I will discuss, with one of the world’s experts, Professor Albert Osterhaus, the value of the Human Viral Challenge (HVC) model and the benefits it brings, and also the challenges of translating the data from such studies into the real world.”
