A review commissioned by STAR-IDAZ IRC on vaccine platforms has been published in the journal Vaccine (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.vaccine.2022.03.059). Vaccine platforms provide exciting opportunities to speed up the delivery of new vaccines particularly in the response to new and emerging diseases. The paper, Applications of platform technologies in veterinary vaccinology and the benefits for one health, was […]
UKRI-BBSRC, on behalf of the veterinary vaccinology research funders and programme owners, are consulting the research community (including those in academia, funding agencies, industry and others) on the current veterinary vaccinology research and innovation needs, as well as the future perspectives. The overall purpose is to gain a better understanding of the priorities, gaps, and barriers […]

The colony-stimulating factor 1 receptor (CSF1R) has been shown to be expressed in the follicle-associated epithelium cells in the avian gut-associated lymphoid tissue. This was an unexpected finding as CSF1R is typically expressed in macrophages, not in epithelial cells. The results in studies with chicken cells pave the way for research looking to enhance the […]
The Immunological Toolbox website was launched at the International Veterinary Immunology Symposium in Seattle last week: https://www.immunologicaltoolbox.co.uk/ . It is a repository of antibodies, other reagents and resources to promote research into veterinary immunology. The aim of the Toolbox is to remove barriers to veterinary vaccine development by facilitating information exchange and collaboration within a […]
