29 September 2017, Scientific Colloquium on Heterologous Prime-Boost Vaccination, Leuven, Belgium.
Lectures and debates will revolve around two themes: the pros & cons of Heterologous Prime Boost (review of existing literature and scientific consensus) and elaborating on pathways for the implementation of effective HPB strategies. Since human, animal and ecosystem health are inextricably linked, a One Health approach is called for when discussing the effectiveness of HPB interventions. The One Health Platform has therefore assembled an international panel of scientific experts from different disciplines and backgrounds.
The event is free of charge - no registration fee.
