Following last year’s ProImmune SARS-CoV-2 Expert Symposium which attracted more than 1000 scientists, we are delighted to announce the next meeting in this exceptional series.

By participating in this half-day symposium, you will be inspired by renowned global experts presenting their SARS-CoV-2 research and discussing their latest insights and what they perceive to be the main challenges still to be overcome in this pandemic.

With new variants such as Omicron emerging, it is unknown whether or not the current approved vaccine designs will be sufficient to see us through to the end of the pandemic phase of SARS-CoV-2. In this meeting our expert speakers present and discuss key new advancements in our understanding of the molecular and cellular immune response to SARS-CoV-2 and SARS-CoV-2 vaccines as well as novel therapeutic interventions for populations at risk. Don’t miss your chance to hear first hand about these developments and participate in our moderated panel discussion.
