The VALIDATE Network - Vaccine development for complex intracellular neglected pathogens
London Centre for NTD Research - Anniversary Event, 2020
Date: 30 Jan 2020 17:00-20:30 (UK)
Location: London, UK
Commemorate the 8th anniversary of the London Declaration on NTDs by joining the London Centre for Neglected Tropical Disease Research (LCNTDR) for an evening of presentations and discussion.
This networking event will shine a spotlight on the pivotal role that NTD research plays in shaping new approaches and frameworks to controlling and eliminating NTDs. Quickfire presentations will highlight some of the new innovations and approaches that will be shaping future public health approaches.
The London Centre for Neglected Tropical Disease Research is an innovative research collaboration between Imperial College London, the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, the Royal Veterinary College, and the Natural History Museum, to bring together leading experts to tackle diseases which affect the lives of over 1.7 billion of the poorest people across the globe.
