The aim of the 9th Vaccine & ISV Congress is to provide a forum for researchers, professionals and policy makers to present, share and exchange the latest cutting edge discoveries in vaccines and vaccinations. We hope to facilitate new collaborations between experts in the field and inspire new and innovative ideas in vaccine development.

The Vaccine & ISV Congress has enjoyed an exciting history covering all aspects of vaccines since 2007. In 2014, we were privileged to hear from Dr Nancy J Sullivan from the National Institutes of Health Vaccine Research Center on developing a novel Ebola vaccine. We are excited to be holding the 9th Vaccine & ISV Congress in Seoul, Korea and invite you to join us to discuss the following topics:
