After an incredibly successful inaugural year, the World Vaccine and Immunotherapy Congress is back in 2018 to bring you more content, learning and business development opportunities so you can take advantage of the rich biotech and funding environment that the West Coast offers.
Whilst still focussing on the vaccine and immunotherapy industry the scope of the event has expanded considerably and will delve deeper into topics surrounding vaccine development, cancer immunotherapy, funding and partnerships as well as exploring new topics in clinical trials & development, bioprocessing, manufacture and delivery, and the development and use of antibodies for both infectious diseases and cancer.
This is the congress for top decision makers of the vaccine and immunotherapy industry with both scientific and commercial interests, specifically interested in both learning and/or partnering.
No matter where your interest lies we have content, networking and potential partners for you.
