The Centre for Vaccine Preventable Diseases (CVPD) is launching a transformative educational and professional development pathway for postdoctoral fellows to develop as emerging leaders and independent multi-disciplinary researchers of immunization and vaccine preventable diseases. There has been a recent recognition that vaccinology, the science of vaccines, encompasses various fields ranging from basic sciences of understanding immunogens, to understanding ethical, economic, and social behavioural approaches that impact delivery and uptake of vaccines.
VICTOIRE provides a collaborative approach to interdisciplinary training for postdoctoral fellows. Fellows engage in learning with a cohort of peers conducting immunization research across different disciplines.
About the Centre for Vaccine Preventable Diseases
The CVPD was established at the University of Toronto in 2019. It is led by the DLSPH on behalf of participating Schools and Departments across the University. The CVPD supports research and translation of research in many key areas along the science and policy continuum, exploring areas such as vaccine education for health care workers, vaccine hesitancy, vaccine coverage, burden of disease, and the health and economic impact of vaccination.
