Course Dates: 3-14 July 2017, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

Epidemiological research has become an important tool in assessing vaccine protection. Although there are several courses specialising in vaccinology, there remains a gap in teaching about advanced epidemiological tools for vaccine evaluation. This course fills that gap, providing an in-depth training on current methods used in the evaluation of vaccine efficiency, safety and policy. It aims to address immunisation issues in high, middle and low income countries.

The overall aim of this short course is to provide an understanding of the methods used in the evaluation of vaccines; from early human trials through to assessment of population impact and policy. Although there are several courses in vaccinology, few are aimed at advanced epidemiological tools for vaccine evaluation. This course fills that gap, providing an understanding of the methods used in the evaluation of vaccines from early clinical trials through to assessment of population impact, modelling, cost-effectiveness analysis, safety surveillance and policy. It aims to tackle issues in high, middle and low income countries.  

The course is relevant to public health professionals and field researchers with a strong interest in vaccine efficacy, safety and policy impact. Participants employed by academic/governmental institutions or NGOs from a LMIC (World Bank definition) are offered a 50% reduction on the course fee. This offer is applicable to a maximum of 10 participants on a first come first serve basis based on receipt of payment.
