Programme Summary

The São Paulo Advanced School on Vaccines aims to provide participants with a critical and comprehensive view of the state of the art in vaccine research.

Importance of the Event

Vaccines are arguably the most important tools for global health. Vaccination reduces disability and death, and saves billions in public health costs by preventing disease. However, the discovery of new vaccines has been very limited. The challenges for the discovery and development of new vaccines will be addressed at the Sao Paulo Advanced School, where a multidisciplinary group of world-renowned scientists will be present. The event will bring together experts from Brazil, United States, Europe, and Asia, along with students from the entire world.
