The CAIRE membership represents over 140 researchers and stakeholders from more than 30 institutions across Canada. Membership includes most of the “translational” vaccine experts involved in vaccine and program development, evaluation and training.
Membership provides an opportunity to share, connect, and collaborate within Canada for evaluation of new vaccines, building the rationale for new public programs and optimizing public immunization programs.
Workshops are new to CIC2016 this year. Plan to participate in two CAIRE supported workshops during the conference:
