The Maternal and Vaccine Immunology Group is an independent, non-commercial, academic group, which is part of the Centre for Neonatal and Paediatric Infection (CNPI) situated in The Institute for Infection & Immunity at St George’s, University of London. We are currently undertaking several studies to answer important questions about serocorrelates of protection in pregnant women in Uganda and the UK, and are also working on the standardisation of the GBS antibody. We hope that our collaborations with leading academic institutions, the WHO, regulators and key players in industry will significantly help towards the design of more efficient and safe vaccines to protect new born babies from life-threatening GBS disease.
In addition, we are undertaking several laboratory studies working on klebsiella, SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19, diphteria and tetanus diseases.
Finally, we are working in human clinical trials and non-clinical trials in other pathogens, such as SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19, measles, and pertussis.
