The EU-funded project TRANSVAC2 and the “Infectious Diseases Models for Innovative Therapies” (IDMIT) are pleased to invite you to a TRANSVAC workshop on “In vivo imaging of host response to vaccines and infections” on 29 March 2019 at the IDMIT research infrastructure at the CEA center of Fontenay-aux-Roses (France). The workshop concentrates on latest advances in new technologies for imaging in living individuals.
This workshop is aimed to present the following topics:
- Kinetics of vaccines distribution and persistence
- Pathogen penetration and dissemination
- Host response to vaccines and pathogens exposure
The workshop will be focused on implication of these approaches for pre-clinical research and translational medicine. International experts of diverse expertise on fluorescent based technologies as well as whole body Positron Emission Tomography–Computed Tomography (PET-CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) technologies will be invited to describe and comment the application of these tools for vaccine research and development.
Four thematic sessions will be offered:
- In vivo imaging of host response: Visualizing host cells in living animals
- Dynamics of pathogen and vaccine antigen distribution and/or dissemination: Local interactions and micro-environment
- Whole body imaging of host/pathogen & antigen interactions
- Transfer to clinical investigation and practice
Roundtables will be held to discuss the needs and opportunities for imaging in vaccine development.
Registration is free and compulsory until 1 March 2019.
For more information, please contact Isabelle Mangeot (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Due to the fact that there are limited places available and participation will be on a “first come first served basis”, registration will close when maximum number of participants will be reached.
(ECRIN is leading the work package on clinical trial support in the TRANSVAC2 project.)
