This year 22 students applied for the Vaccinology Student Research Program (VSRP) at the Canadian Immunization Conference (CIC), almost double from previous years. Five students received travel bursaries to attend the conference with all student applicants invited to participate in the Student Poster Presentation. CAIRE and CIHR have co-funded the VSRP.
Congratulations to all students for a job well done! (pictures below)
