The Ebola epidemic, which tore through West Africa in 2014, and continues to pose a huge global health challenge, has prompted unparalleled collaboration between academia, industry and government. This has led to the generation and trialing of new vaccine candidates at unprecedented rates.

Join us for what is certain to be an informative and enthralling discussion about how entrepreneurs, academics, industry professionals and governments can learn lessons from the collaborative approach used to fight Ebola, and how this can lead to revolutionary new approaches in drug discovery & development.
