This “Master Class in Immunology” will focus on advances in our understanding of immunology as applied to captive populations of nondomestic animals. We will discuss topics such as the impact of genetic diversity on immunologic function, new approaches to vaccination against infectious diseases and other conditions, and current information on the efficacy and safety of adjuvanted vaccines. We will conclude with a group activity to identify critical areas for future research.
