VALIDATE keeps growing and this week we welcome another five new members to our network. Check out their profiles and get in touch if you think they could be part of your next collaboration.

New VALIDATE Events Page

VALIDATE has so many upcoming events that we thought we would revamp our events page so you can find all you need to know about upcoming public lectures, seminars, school talks, and workshops in one place - www.validate-network.org/events


You can find all other funding opportunities on our external funding page.

    Training Opportunities and Events:

      Check out our Publications Page for members' publications and email VALIDATE@ndm.ox.ac.uk if you have a paper you would like us to include.



      Highlights on Twitter this week:

      We continued our #BCG100Facts infographics which included fascinating information about TB in the Stone age, ancient Babylon, ancient Greece, and the bible. We also promoted our BCG100 for Schools event. Uniting to Combat Neglected Tropical Diseases has partnered with the Global Youth Storytelling Festival and the Stop TB Partnership celebrated the role played by TB healthcare workers in responding to COVID-19. The UK’s All-Party Parliamentary Group on Vaccinations for All wrote to the government there to express their dismay at the proposed cuts to the global vaccine Initiatives. The British Society for Immunology tweeted an infographic explaining herd immunity and shared the video of a webinar where Dr Alison Whitelegg discussed her journey from academia into clinical science. Alfredo D Torres celebrated editing another VALIDATE Publication.

      Following @NetworkVALIDATE on Twitter is the best way to keep up to date. You can also take part in BCG100 by using the hashtag #BG100
