On the 26th October 2021, the University of Cape Town (UCT) will host “Vaccines in Africa from Africa”, a live event that will take a deep-dive look at the continent’s capacity for developing and manufacturing vaccines.
Gathering industry experts, scientists and business leaders, including keynote speaker, Dr Patrick Soon-Shiong, philanthropist and Executive Chairman of ImmunityBio, the university hopes to highlight the critical need for a vaccine pipeline in Africa, and assess the challenges and opportunities that face such a step.
Among the speakers are:
A panel discussion, chaired by UCT’s Vice Chancellor, Professor Mamokgethi Phakeng, will feature Dr Morena Makhoana, Chief Executive Officer of the BioVac Institute, UCT’s Professor Anna-Lise Williamson, South African Research Chair in Vaccinology Research, Petro Terblanche, Managing Director of Afrigen Biologics and Vaccines, and Emeritus Professor Greg Hussey, Director of Vaccines for Africa (VACFA).
