CDC and 10 other national and international agencies and organizations will collaborate with the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases in sponsoring the Ninth Annual Conference on Vaccine Research (including basic science, product development, and clinical and field studies), to be held May 8-10, 2006, at the Marriott Inner Harbor Hotel, Baltimore, Maryland. The conference is devoted exclusively to the research and development of vaccines and related technologies for the prevention and treatment of disease and will bring together human and veterinary vaccinology researchers.
Thirty-four speakers will address topics that include tuberculosis vaccines, vaccines in the elderly and adolescents, herd immunity, vaccine constructs based on novel immunologic strategies, veterinary vaccines, adverse reactions, and differing immune responses in developing countries. Oral and poster presentations will be selected through peer review of submitted abstracts.
