Vaccinology

This four-week course presents an integrated overview of vaccinology, from public health data and scientific results justifying the development of a vaccine up to its delivery to the populations in the context of industrialized and developing countries.

 

The Vaccinology course comprises four modules :

 

  • Introduction to vaccinology, an integrative discipline.
  • Preclinical and clinical steps: basic principles.
  • Update on vaccine development for the major infectious diseases.
  • Future challenges.

The course also includes methodology workshops based on a partnership with the HSeT Foundation which has developed an e-learning website dedicated to the course. Personalized tutoring is also ensured.

 

This course is dedicated to people with a medical or scientific training background who are interested in all aspects of this new discipline: medical and public health students, PhD students (e.g., immunology, microbiology), scientists, physicians, pharmacists, veterinarians and other health professionals.

 

The program of the course organized the previous year can be downloaded to get detailed information on the general frame of the course; some topics and practical works may change each year, without altering the general aims and means of the course.
