Ceva hosted the first ever Vector Vaccine Symposium in San Diego, Calif., from Oct. 6 through 8.

The event, which brought in over 280 people from 41 countries, focused on the use of vector vaccines in poultry. "The link between animal and human welfare is more marked today than ever before," said Dr. Arnaud Bourgeois, vice president of the Ceva Group. "This highlights why we want to reduce the risk of transmission of zoonotic diseases. As vaccine manufacturers we have a significant responsibility and we will continue to invest massively in this area."

The need to balance increased poultry production with assured food safety was the symposium's central theme.
