Secondary Schools invitation only event

Professor Adrian V.S. Hill is Director of the Jenner Institute at Oxford University. His current lead malaria vaccine has shown high efficacy in clinical trials in the UK and Africa and is likely to be the first widely used vaccine to impact on the great disease burden of malaria in Africa. In 2005 he founded the Jenner Institute at Oxford, an initiative aimed at accelerating public sector vaccine development for a range of infectious diseases, and partnered with the Pirbright Institute on veterinary vaccine development. The Jenner Institute is now the largest academic vaccine centre globally with clinical-stage vaccine programmes against thirteen diseases.

Recently the Jenner Institute has initiated a major effort towards rapid development of a COVID-19 vaccine. A clinical trial of which he is the Oxford principal investigator is in progress. He has published 600 research papers with over 68,000 citations and co-founded several vaccine companies.
