This is a two-day workshop, co-sponsored by CBER/FDA and NIAID/NIH to 1) assess the scientific knowledge base regarding vaccine adjuvants, 2) identify gaps in our knowledge and ability to evaluate vaccine adjuvants and adjuvanted vaccines, and 3) facilitate the implementation of a global research agenda to address the identified gaps and improve the safety and efficacy assessments of adjuvanted vaccines for the treatment and prevention of infectious disease. The target audience and participants include academia, government researchers, government regulators, vaccine clinical trial experts and industry representatives.
