Robust discussions at Scientific Advisory Board meeting

24 July 2023

CAPRISA’s two-day Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) meeting held from 27 – 28 June at the Coastlands Musgrave hotel brought together distinguished global and local scientists, collaborators and policymakers to learn about recent and forthcoming research in CAPRISA’s four priority areas: Vaccines, Pathogenesis & Broadly Neutralising Antibodies; Epidemiology, Prevention and Mucosal Immunology; HIV and TB Treatment and Pandemics and Epidemics.

The presentations elicited robust discussions and insights on the challenges in public health particularly in low-income countries and in medical research.   Professor Thomas Quinn Vice-Chair of SAB said: “I personally believe this has been the most outstanding SAB that we have had, the most insightful, the most outstanding presentations. CAPRISA… but also to the leaders of CAPRISA, of each of the sections and to the overall leaders for their vision, their leadership, the organizational skills, their mentorship.”
