Event by Flanders Vaccine

The objective of this event is to connect important actors in the field of immunology, vaccinology, virology, epidemiology, oncology and other disciplines, contributing to research and development of next generation vaccines and immunotherapy.

After some inspiring presentations and pitches, participants can have pre-booked 1-1 meetings during the B2B matchmaking session.

The event focuses on Next Generation Vaccines & Immunotherapy, spotlighting advancements and innovations in vaccine and immunotherapy research and development. During this networking afternoon, speakers can share their expertise on cutting-edge vaccine platform technologies, broad-spectrum vaccine strategies, novel biomarker discovery tools, enhanced vaccine delivery systems, artificial intelligence, and other successful technologies and supporting services that will help to prevent us from existing and emerging pathogens. Furthermore, we can also delve into the groundbreaking research driving the remarkable progress in immunotherapy. This research not only fuels the development of new biomarkers but also paves the way for next-generation cell therapies, cancer vaccines, multi-specific antibodies and other clinically significant breakthroughs.
