Workshop A: Advances in using structure-based knowledge for smarter vaccine designs

Structure-based vaccines are designed on the rationale that atomic-level information on antibody-antigen interactions can provide critical insight to assist the development of immunogens capable of inducing protection against pathogens. Structure-based vaccines have become a much-anticipated field over the years with increasingly more preclinical and clinical staged developments. This workshop focuses on recent advances and their application in providing protection against infectious diseases.
  • Progress in Stabilized Pre-fusion Glycoprotein Vaccines for Paramyxoviruses & HIV-1
  • Structure-based antigen design to tackle vaccine challenges for class I fusion proteins
  • Using structural based vaccine design to target flavivirus infections: Zika and Dengue
  • GSK’s CMV structural biology research
