The objective of this course is to offer an integrated overview of vaccinology, from public health and scientific data justifying the development of a vaccine, to its delivery to the populations in the context of industrialized and developing countries.
Dedicated to candidates with a medical or scientific background who are interested in all aspects of vaccinology: medical and public health students, scientific Master II and PhD students (Immunology, Microbiology), physicians, pharmacists, veterinarians and other health professionals. The MOOC is composed of 31 lectures presenting historical aspects of vaccines, immunology and design of vaccines, basic principles of preclinical and clinical development, an update of vaccine development for the major infectious diseases, and the future challenges of vaccinology.
This MOOC is organized in 6 modules over a time period of 6 weeks. Each module consists of 5/6 video sequences of 10 minutes length on average, followed by two questions to help learners to update their understanding. For each sequence, discussions are open on the forum. The main questions addressed on the forums will be answered weekly in live by hangouts. The videos are in English subtitled in French.
Weekly tests plus a final QCM test will allow obtaining a certification of successful attending to the course.
