The International Vaccine Institute’s 21st International Vaccinology Course

Established in 2000, IVI’s International Vaccinology Course is one of the longest-running vaccinology courses in the Asia-Pacific region.
In order to celebrate IVI’s EU office opening in Stockholm, this year’s vaccinology course will be organized in a hybrid format having the participants hosted in Karolinska Institute (15-20 participants in Stockholm) and IVI HQ (115 participants in Seoul), the presentations will be lively broadcasted from both venues (i.e., Stockholm and Seoul).

This year’s five-day course highlights Breakthroughs in Vaccine Science and Technology, paying tribute to the remarkable strides in vaccine innovation during the COVID-19 pandemic and how they’ve changed the landscape and future of vaccine development.

The course is a combination of lectures, and interactive case studies, presented and facilitated by experts from academia, industry, government, and non-governmental organizations.
From “refresher” lectures to applied topics in vaccine discovery, development, and delivery, the course provides a comprehensive overview of vaccinology with a focus on practicality
