Join us! hVIVO to sponsor RSV Vaccines for the World in California, USA, November 2015

November 3, 2015 5:55 pm

RSV Vaccines for the World, The Salk Institute, La Jolla, California, USA. 18-20 November 2015

Dr Rob Lambkin-Williams, hVIVO Executive Scientific Advisor, and Dr Anthony Gilbert, Medical Director, will each be speaking at the RSV Vaccines for the World conference. In company with the oral presentations, hVIVO will feature a scientific poster at the conference.

As a follow up to RSVW 2013 held in Portugal, RSVVW 2015 will again provide an opportunity for world renowned experts in RSV research to discuss updated vaccine strategies against the RSV pathogen.  RSVVW 2015 is hosted within the distinct and bold architecture of The Salk Institute in La Jolla, California, USA, 18-20 November 2015.

Dr Rob Lambkin-Williams will be presenting on Day 1, and his presentation, which will cover how the Human Challenge Model accelerates RSV vaccine development, is entitled “RSV Vaccines: An unhappy past, an ever brighter future?”.

Dr Anthony Gilbert will be presenting on Day Three (20th November), and his presentation, which will give insight into the pioneering work conducted by hVIVO, is entitled “The Human Viral Challenge Model – Accelerating the Development of RSV Vaccines”.

Dr Gilbert commented: “Dr Lambkin-Williams and I are looking forward to attending and speaking at RSVVW 2015. Although RSV can result in serious illness in infants and older adults, currently there are no licensed vaccines for the prophylaxis of RSV infection. This therefore constitutes a major, urgent unmet clinical need. We look forward to providing insight into the use of the hVIVO Human Challenge Model to help accelerate RSV vaccine development.”

Accompanying the oral presentations at the event is a scientific poster, presented by Melissa Wagner, Senior Director Business Development.

The hVIVO scientific poster is entitled: “Development of ViruSpot Imaging Technology for High Throughput Measurement of RSV-Neutralising Antibodies During Vaccine Trials” and is authored by Kate Carney, Daryl Borley, Thomas Hand, Bhavika Desai, Ted Murray, Nishant Pawa, Andrew Catchpole and Peter Sargent.
