What will I learn?

We have established a Centre for Global Vaccine Research to integrate world-leading multidisciplinary research and training in laboratory science, clinical trials and epidemiology within the Institute of Infection and Global Health, and reaching across the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences and partners around the world.

Overview

The University of Liverpool’s Institute of Infection and Global Health was established to bring together leading medical, veterinary and basic science researchers from across the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences.

The Centre for Global Vaccine Research currently works across Europe, Asia, Africa and more recently South America. Our research spans the breadth of vaccine research from development to implementation and evaluation.

The key aims of this research are to:

  • Develop and evaluate novel vaccines against major global causes of illness and death
  • Better understand and improve the performance of existing vaccines
  • Generate evidence to inform vaccine policy nationally and internationally
  • Share pre-clinical expertise amongst human and veterinary vaccinologists
  • Train and educate a new generation of vaccine scientists

Research themes

The Centre for Global Vaccine Research has six research themes covering key methodological disciplines within vaccinology and areas of strength shared by the Centre partners. These disciplines can be applied to both medical and veterinary vaccines. The themes are:

  • Disease epidemiology & Clinical trials
  • Vaccine adjuvants
  • Microbial ecology
  • Antigen discovery & vaccine development
  • Pre-clinical assessment models
  • Immune correlates of protection
