EPSRC Centre New Horizon Research - Tuesday 14 April 2015 (UCL)
This meeting reviewed the “adventurous” research activities that are funded under the Centre’s platform budget and Centre for Doctoral Training. These activities are intended to explore and establish new research directions and to enhance and be complementary to the programme of the two flagship projects. Presentations from feasibility studies funded by the Centre and from CDT projects, including an exhibition of posters covering breadth of Departmental research aligned to the Centre.

'Vaccine process development – better tools for better vaccines' Workshop - 5 November 2014
The challenges for vaccine process development are similar to those for the biopharmaceuticals with one key exception. Vaccines in general do not have platform processes, therefore greater efforts are required in the characterisation of new products and processes. A range of new tools to aid process development for biopharmaceuticals are applicable to the vaccine development process. These focus on speeding the time to market, undertaking process development with minimal amounts of material, applying high throughput methodologies where possible and developing optimal formulations for the final product.
This workshop highlights process development research and development tools applicable to vaccines. The workshop builds new and strengthen existing links between the vaccine research community and the bioprocess research community.
