The Institute for Immunology and Informatics at the University of Rhode Island will be hosting a workshop in vaccine design and Computational Vaccinology using the iVAX toolkit, to be held at the Institut Pasteur in Paris, France.
Students and researchers will have the opportunity to learn about state-of-the-art informatics tools and how they may be applied to rapidly develop vaccines.
Participants will hear from speakers who have used the iVAX toolkit to identify epitopes and design vaccines and be able to perform real-time analysis.
The workshop will be held on October 4, 2017, prior to the International Society of Vaccines (ISV) Annual Congress, on October 5 – 7, 2017 at the Institut Pasteur.
Registration is required for the workshop. The fee is €250 ($280.50) for non-students and €50 ($56) for all graduate and undergraduate students with a letter
of support from a mentor or adviser verifying they are enrolled in a course of study and that the iVAX toolkit will be useful. Please email this information to Matt Parrillo (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will provide a code for the reduced student rate.
