BELLEROPHON Annual Meeting 2016

18 July 2016

This year’s BELLEROPHON annual meeting took place 07-08 July in Heidelberg, Germany.  Staying at the ‘Internationales Wissenschaftsforum’ in the old town of Heidelberg allowed the participants to discuss the scientific progress in a charming and pleasant atmosphere.

In the past year major progress has been achieved within the BELLEROPHON Staphylococcus aureus vaccine project, as already reflected in several publications.  The vaccine candidate now shows efficacy in several preclinical models.  In addition, new antigens have been identified, which in combination with the current vaccine candidate, are expected to improve efficacy.  The independent scientific advisory committee was therefore impressed by the achievements of BELLEROPHON, whereby the consortium has become internationally competitive within a remarkably short period of time.
