2012 Neglected Tropical Diseases Workshop

Beginning May 29 the Institute for Immunology and Informatics will be holding its 2012 Neglected Tropical Disease Vaccine Design Training Program. The workshop will be held at the iCubed laboratories located on the University of Rhode Island’s Providence Campus.

The aim of this workshop is to train new Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD) researchers to use state-of-the-art immunoinformatics tools to develop new vaccines faster and more effectively, ultimately reducing the global burden of NTD. The training at iCubed will include an intensive, hand-on immunoinformatics and vaccinology core curriculum as well as bench-based immunology training.

Selection of the NTD Fellows is based on the individual’s current involvement in research on neglected tropical diseases, prior doctoral or equivalent training in immunology or a related area in the vaccine development field, and substantial commitment from the applicant’s home institution to their future research career. The fellows will generate data on a selected NTD during the training program and will publish the results after the training.
