On 25th April, a group of leading research networks and groups in Oxford presented to the public their latest work to combat malaria. Philippe Guérin (WWARN) presented alongside Dominic Kwiatkowski (MalariaGen), Katherine Battle (Malaria Atlas Project), Nick White (MORU) and Sumi Biswas (Jenner Institute), discussing their innovative research and multi-disciplinary collaborations in malaria.
The 24 – 30 April is World Immunisation Week with the focus of this year’s WHO campaign is “Close the immunisation gap”. NDM and Paediatrics spoke to Professor Calman MacLennan, Professor of Vaccine Immunology (University of Birmingham) and Jenner Investigator (Oxford), and Dr Manish Sadarangani Clinical Lecturer and Honorary Consultant in Paediatric Infectious Diseases and Immunology at The Children’s Hospital, Oxford about vaccinations and how we can “close the gap” and get more people vaccinated to prevent deadly diseases.
