The availability of numerous vaccines and the rapidly advancing medical technology allow fighting human diseases nowadays than in the past. This enormous advance is due to a better knowledge of immunity, which is the ability of host body to protect itself. The vaccines platform aims at strengthening scientific expertise and technological tools to facilitate optimization of vaccine development for human diseases and at sharing information across pathologies, such as infection diseases and cancer. The integration, harmonization and coordination of complementary technologies and strategies will generate new knowledge and accelerate development of effective and safe vaccines.
