The BactiVac Network was established in August 2017, bringing together academic, industrial and other partners involved in vaccine research against human and animal bacterial infections from the UK and LMICs.

The BactiVac Network fosters partnership, disseminates relevant information and provides catalyst project and training support with the aim of accelerating vaccine development for bacterial infections relevant to LMICs. The Network is directed by Professor Cal MacLennan and Professor Adam Cunningham and is hosted at the University of Birmingham. The Network is managed and governed (PDF 669 KB) by the:
