Melioidosis Vaccine Development Workshop

Friday, March 21, 2014 - Friday, March 21, 2014
Porton Down, Salisbury, England

The primary goal of the MVDC is to accelerate research toward and development of a melioidosis vaccine, with secondary goals of enabling basic and applied research in fundamental and translational melioidosis research. The committee will recommend a development pathway, considering both therapeutic and prophylactic vaccines. The role of a therapeutic vaccine will be to decrease the duration of an onerous antibiotic regimen, and also to provide a critical time-frame to treat patients with secondary causes of mortality from the disease, such as diabetes. These activities will provide the framework for collaborations among NIH-funded researchers and other international scientists in the field and advance the field in the most important, cutting edge directions.
