Third biennial International Precision Vaccines Conference: “Lessons Learned from the Pandemic” — September 22 and 23, 2021, in Boston.

The third biennial International Precision Vaccines Conference (IPVC), hosted by the Precision Vaccines Program of Boston Children’s Hospital, will be held September 22-23, 2021. The conference goal is to foster collaboration in developing vaccines tailored to distinct and vulnerable populations such as the young and elderly.

This year’s theme, Precision Vaccines: Lessons Learned from the Coronavirus Pandemic, will be presented through a hybrid model of virtual (live streaming) and a limited in-person space at The Inn at Longwood Medical in Boston, Massachusetts. Expert speakers in vaccinology and immunology from various industry, government, and academia groups will provide insight into the following session topics:

  • precision vaccinology during a pandemic
  • emerging technology platforms for SARS-CoV-2 vaccines
  • clinical considerations for CoV vaccine trials
  • vaccine safety and surveillance
  • vaccine bioethics

We invite you to join this special event to learn, share, and connect.
