Scientific Meeting - Vaccines and antimicrobial resistance: from science to policy

29-30 April 2024

Location: The Royal Society, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AG


A Royal Society Science+ Meeting on ‘Vaccines and Antimicrobial Resistance: from Science to Policy’ will be held on 29 - 30 April 2024 with the support of BactiVac at the Royal Society in London, UK. The meeting, chaired by BactiVac Director, Cal MacLennan, and Dame Sally Davies, UK Special Envoy for AMR will bring together scientists and vaccine developers from academia and industry, global policy makers, regulators, and funders, from the fields of human and veterinary vaccines.

Vaccines for humans and animals represent an attractive means to counter the growing global pandemic of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) but are only available against a few key bacterial pathogens. The meeting will review the science of how vaccines reduce AMR, identify research gaps in developing AMR vaccines and discuss policy in advancing development and equitable deployment of such vaccines.

Please refer to the meeting programme for the full list of speakers.
