Vaccines: Impact on Global Health and Economics

By Dr. Lorne A. Babiuk, 2013 Killam Prize Winner in Health Sciences
2014 Canada Council Killam Prize Lecture Series

Vaccines have saved more lives than all other therapies. Dr. Babiuk will describe new formulations and vaccine delivery methods that can further reduce morbidity and mortality in humans. Since over 70% of newly emerged diseases are transmitted from animals to humans, developing dual-use vaccines to prevent their spread from animals to humans is critical. Controlling disease in animals has the potential to increase food security in developing countries and improve their economic stability.

Seating is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration is appreciated. A reception will follow.
