B Part of It will be largest study of its kind in the world, attempting to engage with more than 50,000 year 10, 11 and 12 students in South Australia. It provides a unique opportunity for students involved to be immunised against Meningococcal B disease at no cost, protecting them from this devastating disease and reducing the spread within the community.
This project is led by Associate Professor Helen Marshall, Director of the Vaccinology and Immunology Research Trials Unit within the Women's and Children's Hospital and the Robinson Research Institute of The University of Adelaide. The unit, part of the Discipline of Paediatrics, has been involved in immunisation research since 1997 and is recognised nationally and internationally for excellence in clinical trial conduct. The multidisciplinary group includes doctors, nurses, scientists and research staff who all specialise in immunisation research.
The events below are intended for immunisation nurses and administrators involved in the Study.
