Vaccine Centre Annual Lecture: Professor Dame Sarah Gilbert

Development of vaccines against outbreak pathogens

The Ebola outbreak in West Africa in 2014 demonstrated how unprepared we were to defend ourselves against a virus first identified in 1976. Work began on the development of vaccines against known outbreak pathogens, but in 2020 it was necessary to respond to ‘disease X’, which was spreading around the world at great speed. Post-pandemic, there is still much to be done to develop vaccines against the known and as yet unknown viruses that have the potential to cause a future outbreak or pandemic.

The lecture will be delivered by Professor Dame Sarah Gilbert and will be followed by a Q&A session.
