Bright Sparks in Vaccinology
Hannah Sharpe received the ‘Bright Sparks in Vaccinology' runner up award and Julia Marshall received a Trainee Award at the 2019 ISV Annual Congress, 27-19 October in Ghent
Hannah works at the Jenner Institute, University of Oxford, on the development of viral vectored vaccines and assessing immune responses after vaccination.
Her abstract entitled ‘Potent immunogenicity and protective efficacy of a multipathogen vaccine targeting Filoviruses and an Arenavirus’ was selected for an oral presentation in the ‘Bright Sparks in Vaccinology’ session for young researchers and came second in a very strong field of candidates.
Julia Marshall from the TB Vaccine Group at the Jenner Institute won an ISV Trainee Award, given to the top five most outstanding submitted abstracts amongst PhD students and Postdocs.
Her abstract entitled ‘Using an aerosol human BCG infection model in healthy, BCG-naïve, UK adults to define the early innate immune response in the lung and systemic circulation’ was also selected to present at the ‘Bright Sparks in Vaccinology’ session for PhD students.
