The perspective underpinning this symposium is that ideas leading to new vaccines usually emerge in settings such as research laboratories at the University of Toronto. We are building here on the legacy and work of people from the past from Toronto, such as Dr. John G. Fitzgerald and Dr. Leone Farrell.
The purpose of the symposium is as follows:
- to bring together laboratory-based scientists at the University of Toronto working on research that is relevant to current and/or future vaccines
- to hear cutting-edge unpublished research that may contribute to the vaccines of the future
- to start to develop a network of immunization researchers at the University of Toronto
The half-day symposium may be of interested to infectious diseases researchers working in diverse departments and divisions of the University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine including LMP, Medicine, Paediatrics, Immunology, Infectious Disease, and the Dalla Lana School of Public Health.
Host: Natasha Crowcroft, MSc, MD(Cantab), MRCP, FFPH
The symposium is being organized in partnership with Public Health Ontario.
