The International Union of Immunological Societies (IUIS) are hosting a successful second IUIS Webinar Series: Immunology without Borders, and are happy to announce the next live webinar on “HIV prevention: antibodies and vaccine development” with Lynn Morris on July 26!
About the Webinar
Despite 40 years of research the HIV epidemic remains a significant global health challenge and an HIV vaccine is still elusive. The recent results from the AMP trial have shown that a broadly neutralizing antibody can provide protection from infection. This has important implications for the pipeline of HIV broadly neutralizing antibodies being developed for prevention as well as vaccines that aim to elicit protective antibodies. This webinar will discuss the role of antibodies in both passive and active vaccination approaches.
