Event Type:  Workshop (This is an NIH Science event)
Title:  2nd Nanotechnology Workshop for HIV, RNA, Infectious Diseases, and Vaccine Delivery
Description:  The Vaccine Translational Research Branch (VTRB) and the Division of AIDS (DAIDS) would like to announce the following workshop…

2nd Nanotechnology Workshop for HIV, RNA, Infectious Diseases, and Vaccine Delivery

5601 Fishers Lane NIAID
Grand Hall (Rm: 1D13)
Rockville, MD 20892
September 25-26, 2017

Registration is required & please do so by September 15, 2017

The 2nd Nanotechnology Workshop for HIV, RNA and Vaccine Delivery 2017 is the second meeting in this new series, for multidisciplinary international researchers working on Infectious disease targets including HIV (protein and DNA/RNA-based) and the use of synthetic or biologically-derived nanoparticles/delivery vehicles as a platform for vaccine/immunogen delivery. Understanding the mechanisms of action and delivery of nanoparticle vaccines coupled with scalable manufacturing translation remains an important endeavor for HIV vaccine and infectious disease research. VTRBs objective is to provide impetus to such innovative and enabling technologies that can greatly accelerate next-generation prophylactic and therapeutic vaccine development. This meeting will focus on discussion and exchange of ideas in diverse areas of vaccination, innovative therapies and delivery systems for development of new-generation vaccines against prevalent and emergent infectious diseases including HIV.

In continuation with the theme from last year, the nanoworkshop will focus on…
(a) Nanoparticle display of immunogens (proteins, RNA/DNA) for targeting and enhancing antigen delivery
(b) Induction of broadly humoral and T cell responses in both small and large animal models
(c) Development and progress in systemic RNA/nucleic acid vaccine delivery platforms against infectious diseases
(d) Codelivery of adjuvant-antigen nanoparticles/formulations to regulate Ab and T cell immune responses
(e) Progress and advances in promising technologies/vaccine candidates from Lab to Clinic
(f) Discuss product development
