Highlights from the NIHR HPRU in Immunisation

Six years of a national immunisation research partnership: highlights from the NIHR HPRU in Immunisation

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Health Protection Research Unit in Immunisation, established in 2014, is a research partnership between the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and Public Health England. From modelling the role of vaccines in preventing antimicrobial resistance to understanding factors affecting vaccination access amongst underserved communities, the HPRU in Immunisation has conducted wide-ranging research to support the national immunisation programme policy and delivery. 

To celebrate our partnership over the last six years and share the outcomes of our work, we are hosting an Open Science event for members of the public and researchers alike on Thursday 12 March 2020. 

The event will start with research highlights from the last six years of the HPRU, covering:

  • Theme 1: Electronic Health Record Research 
  • Theme 2: Modelling, Economics, Evidence-synthesis
  • Theme 3: Vaccine Delivery and Confidence
  • Public and Patient Involvement and Engagement  


Please note: Unfortunately, our guest lecturers from the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (Dr Albert Jan van Hoek and Dr Susan Hahné) have had to cancel – but we are pleased to have Prof Mark Jit who will provide a timely update for us all on “What are LSHTM scientists doing to help us understand and prepare for COVID-19?” with an opportunity for questions afterward.


A brief reception will follow in the South Courtyard.
