International Veterinary Vaccinology Network - Annual Conference 2020

Monday 16th March 2020, 8:30am to Wednesday 18th March 2020, 5:00pm

Hanoi, Vietnam

This three-day event will build on the success of the inaugural IVVN conference in Nairobi, Kenya in March 2018 and the UK & International Veterinary Vaccinology Network Conference in London, UK in January 2019. 


IVVN annual conferences are an excellent opportunity for the global veterinary vaccinology community to meet, and establish novel, international collaborations that are required to develop vaccines for livestock and zoonotic diseases of importance in low-and-middle income countries (LMICs).



The IVVN Conference will consist of four species-specific themes:-

  • Vaccines for Poultry: co-hosted by One Health Poultry Hub and chaired by Professor Fiona Tomley (Royal Veterinary College, UK) and Professor Hualan Chen (Harbin Veterinary Research Institute, China)
  • Vaccines for Aquaculture: chaired by Professor Sandra Adams (University of Stirling, UK) and Dr Thao Ngo (Biotechnology Centre of Ho-chi Min City, Vietnam)
  • Vaccines for Ruminants: chaired by Professor Bryan Charleston (The Pirbright Institute, UK) and Dr Yanmin Li (Lanzhou Veterinary Research Institute, China) 
  • Vaccines for Swine: chaired by Dr Simon Graham (The Pirbright Institute, UK) and Dr Filip Claes (Emergency Center for Transboundary Animal Diseases, Thailand)

Dr Nicola Stock and Jayne Quoiani of The Roslin Institute are confirmed speakers at this Conference.

Dr Kim Thompson of Moredun Research Institute will also be speaking.
