Organisation profile

The Bristol Children's Vaccine Centre (BCVC) is a research group headed by Professor Adam Finn.

We are a collaboration of paediatricians, scientists and children’s nurses interested in studying the serious infections of childhood and ways to prevent them.

The main focus of the BCVC is on translational research related to mucosal vaccine development and specifically the mucosal immune response to the pneumococcus Streptococcus pneumoniae.

We also run clinical epidemiological studies of the incidence of invasive infections in children and clinical trials related to medicines for children including vaccines.
