Dr Eliane Miyayi will visit Dr Daniela Ferreira as part of the collaboration recently set-up between LSTM and the Butantan Institute in Sao Paulo Brazil. She will present her work on "Pneumococcal vaccines based on PspA and other choline-binding proteins". The main focus of Eliane’s career is the development of common pneumococcal protein vaccines for broad protection. Her main research interests are the antigen variability of vaccine candidates, the immune responses induced by immunization and vaccine-mediated mechanisms of protection against pneumococcal carriage and invasive infection in murine models.
