About

The University of Liverpool’s Institute of Infection and Global Health was established to bring together leading medical, veterinary and basic science researchers from across the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences. The Vaccinology programme is offered by University of Liverpool.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The Centre for Global Vaccine Research currently works across Europe, Asia, Africa and more recently South America. Our research spans the breadth of vaccine research from development to implementation and evaluation.

The key aims of this Vaccinology programme from University of Liverpool are to:

  • Develop and evaluate novel vaccines against major global causes of illness and death
  • Better understand and improve the performance of existing vaccines
  • Generate evidence to inform vaccine policy nationally and internationally
  • Share pre-clinical expertise amongst human and veterinary vaccinologists
  • Train and educate a new generation of vaccine scientists.

Facilities

Within IGH there is access to a wide array of facilities for conducting vaccine research including  immunology, in vivo animal models, tissue culture and microbial propogation (including category 3 pathogens). In the wider university there is the technology directorate which gives access to various imaging and omics platforms. There is a clinical trials unit and phase 1 trial facility in the neighbouring Royal Liverpool hospital. 

There are established links with local primary care and public health England. The vaccine centre has strong links to overseas sites in Africa, Asia and more recently South America. We have a particularly strong connection to Malawi where many former clinical and non-clinical PhDs have spent time in the Wellcome Trust Major Overseas program Laboratories.
