Tackling the Worms that Turned: PARAGONE, an EU Project on Parasite Vaccines

In this article, Professor Jacqueline B Matthews of
Moredun Research Institute gives an insight into the
PARAGONE Vaccine Development Project, the EU Horizon
2020-funded multicellular parasite vaccine consortium
which includes a group of academics and commercial
organisations, that are taking a collegiate approach to
moving forward vaccines designed to control several
major multicellular parasites of cattle, sheep and poultry.
An important part of the project is the strong element of
dialogue between the academic partners and the animal
health company partners, in addition to several outreach
activities to other end-users such as farmers, veterinarians
and regulators.
