Webinars

Please join us for a webinar entitled “Reverse Vaccinology for HIV Immunogen Design presented by Dr. Jean-Philippe Julien of the Molecular Structure & Function Program at the SickKids Research Institute and Assistant Professor in the Departments of Biochemistry and Immunology at the University of Toronto.  This webinar will provide Canadian researchers and members of the Canadian HIV Vaccine Initiative Research and Development Alliance with an increased understanding of structural biology to identify sites of vulnerability on Env, visualizing the HIV Env glycan shield at atomic resolution.  The webinar will be of particular interest to HIV researchers and trainees that want to learn about updates on the development of recombinant Env trimers and germline-targeting immunogens to overcome barriers towards an HIV vaccine.  All are welcome.

Webinar title: Reverse Vaccinology for HIV Immunogen Design

When:  Wednesday July 6, 2016

Time: 1:00-2:00 pm EST (12:00 – 1:00 pm CST, 11:00 pm – 12: 00 pm MST and 10:00 am – 11:00 pm PST)

Presenter:

  • Jean-Philippe Julien is a Scientist in the Molecular Structure & Function Program at the SickKids Research Institute since 2014. Dr. Julien is also cross-appointed as an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Biochemistry and Immunology at the University of Toronto.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of the webinar you will:

  1. Understand advances in B cell biology and structural biology to identify sites of vulnerability on Env
  2. Become familiar with visualizing the HIV Env glycan shield at atomic resolution
  3. Learn about updates on the development of recombinant Env trimers and germline-targeting immunogens to overcome barriers towards an HIV vaccine
