Have you ever wondered exactly how vaccines are designed? What exactly goes into them? How our own immune system can be used to help battle disease? Join us for an evening with scientists that helped develop the Oxford-AZ COVID-19 vaccine. We shall have talks from leading scientists in vaccines and immunology, including researchers from Oxford University, Imperial College London and Cancer Research UK. We shall explore what really goes into vaccines in a fun pub related way and discuss the future of using the immune system to battle both infectious (Hepatitis C, COVID-19) and chronic diseases ...

Introduction: Developing vaccines in the pandemic and beyond

Ellie Barnes (Professor of Hepatology and Experimental Medicine)
I shall give a broad introduction to my work over the past decade to develop a vaccine for hepatitis C and the role my group has played in the pandemic to assess the efficiency of the Covid vaccines.

Developing a New Hepatitis C vaccine

Rebecca Strain (PhD Student)
I will discuss my recent work to develop a vaccine against hepatitis C. I will explain how the ChAdOx vaccine technology used in the Covid vaccine works, as well as explaining the challenges we are currently facing with developing a vaccine against hepatitis C.

COVID vaccines for the immunocompromised

Sam Murray (PhD Student)
I will discuss the effectiveness of the covid vaccines in immunocompromised people and the robustness of the covid vaccine, specifically, its adaptability against new variants such as Omicron.

Cancer vaccines and immunotherapy

Derek Paisley (Project Leader, CRUK Centre For Drug Development)
Jenny Craigen (Principal Translational Scientist, CRUK Centre For Drug Development)
We will discuss how the CRUK Centre for Drug Development takes promising discoveries from exploratory and pre-clinical phases through to sponsorship of early-stage oncology clinical trials. In particular we will focus on CRUK’s development of immunotherapies for cancer patients which includes trials of promising immunotherapeutic vaccines as well as other treatment modalities.
