A vaccine training network is combating bacterial and societal resistance simultaneously
Antimicrobial resistance has taken on pandemic proportions. Simultaneously, a growing number of people have become resistant to vaccination. Scientists are increasingly called upon to advocate for societal problems of all kinds, stepping into the spotlight rather than donning white robes in isolated labs with minimal public contact. BactiVax intends to do just that. This project is tackling vaccine development for bacterial infections throughout the pipeline from antigen discovery to vaccine delivery. However, its impact will not stop at scientific development. The team has made public engagement and awareness a key pillar, and the scientific and public advocacy hats will both be donned by early stage researchers as well as part of a bacterial vaccine training network.
