Bloomsbury SET Vaccines Symposium: combatting infectious disease and antimicrobial resistance

Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel, 9-13 Bloomsbury Street, London WC1B 3QD, UK

Unfortunately The Bloomsbury SET Vaccines Symposium scheduled for 23 April has been cancelled, due to WHO guidance & UK Government restrictions caused by measures taken to combat the spread of COVID-19. It will be re-arranged as soon as conditions allow, we hope in Nov/Dec 2020.

The Bloomsbury SET is a knowledge exchange collaboration on infectious disease and antimicrobial resistance, involving the Royal Veterinary College, the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, the London School of Economics & Political Science and SOAS, University of London. This is the second of four symposia presenting the knowledge exchange projects supported by The Bloomsbury SET.
