CollaborationThe Vaccine Research Network benefits from close collaborations with other Centres, Networks and Groups at Imperial College London:

Imperial Networks of Excellence & Centres

We collaborate closely with other Imperial Networks of Excellence and Centres including

MRC Global Challenges Research Fund Networks for Vaccine R&D

MRC-funded vaccine research networks led from Imperial College London:

Human Infection Challenge for Vaccines (HIC-Vac) network

  • HIC-Vac brings together investigators using a variety of pathogen challenge systems, fostering collaboration and acting as a knowledge repository for others wishing to establish these powerful experimental medicine techniques.
  • To find out more, please see the HIC-Vac website.

Immunising PRegnant women and INfants neTwork (IMPRINT)

  • IMPRINT aims to understand how to optimise vaccines in the context of immature or altered immunity to protect pregnant women and infants.

HPRUs in collaboration with Public Health England co-led from Imperial College London:

NIHR Imperial Biomedical Research Centre (BRC)

The majority of Network investigators also work closely within the NIHR Imperial BRC, especially on the following themes:

Imperial College Academic Health Science Centre (AHSC)

The Imperial College AHSC improves the health and well-being of patients by translating research discoveries into medical advances. For further information, please see the Imperial College AHSC website.
