Why Attend

What transformational changes will define the next era of pneumococcal disease prevention?


This new era will be characterized by new generation vaccines and strategies for their use, improved understanding of genomics, next-generation sequencing, new diagnostics, and the role of the microbiome, and better knowledge of host-pathogen interaction.


Join us for the 12th International Symposium on Pneumococci and Pneumococcal Diseases (ISPPD-12) to learn more about these topics, showcase your latest research to your peers, and network with colleagues during the session breaks.
