Emerging & Re-Emerging

 

WVC Emerging Diseases

 

The Ebola & Zika outbreaks brought emerging and re-emerging diseases screaming into the limelight. This brought with it a renewed vigor for vaccines from the public and a catalyst for the scientific community to progress vaccines for diseases such as Ebola, Malaria, Dengue, and Chikungunya. Use this Conference to meet with and demonstrate your knowledge to the organizations who are pushing forward in this area.
