30 July 2015

For the first time Pasteur Institute launches a vaccinology MOOC, available from September 17th, 2015. This course is organized in 6 modules (downloadable videos) over a time period of 6 weeks. There will be weekly tests, a forum, discussions on line through hangouts and a final QCM test. Mind you the MOOC will not replace the standard face-to-face vaccinology course.

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 dedicated to doctors, pharmacists, researchers, students, nurses or other staff of public or private hospitals, staff of the pharmaceutical industry or of public health services.

This context challenges the implementation of ring vaccination based on the identification of contacts and contacts of contacts, as recommended by SAGE in April 2017 and confirmed by SAGE during its April 2019 meeting. Further, a potential vaccine shortage may manifest in case the outbreak expands further and/or is prolonged.
