VACCELERATE webinar: “Vaccination Hurdles: Navigating the Complexities of Immunizing the Vulnerable”
February 22 @ 13:00 - 14:00 CET
With Prof. Paolo Palma, MD, PhD, Responsabile UOC di Immunologia Clinica e Vaccinologia, IRCCS Ospedale Pediatrico Bambino Gesù, Rome, Italy
Routine vaccination is among the most effective clinical interventions to prevent diseases as it is estimated to save over 3 million lives every year. However, the full potential of global immunization programs is not realised because population coverage is still suboptimal.
In this webinar, Prof. Palma describes innovative and experimental approaches that can help identify specific genomic profiles defining non-responder individuals for whom specific interventions might be needed. He will provide examples that show how such information can be useful to identify novel biomarkers of safety and immunogenicity for future vaccine trials.
