August 2023

Inno4Vac announces the nomination of the independent Scientific and Ethics Advisory Committee (SEAC) of the Inno4Vac project.

The Inno4Vac Scientific and Ethics Advisory Committee has been assembled to provide advice and guidance to the Inno4Vac General Assembly and Steering Committee on scientific and ethical issues of the Inno4Vac project.

Annually, upon request of the Steering Committee, the SEAC prepares a report including recommendations on the scientific advancement of the project as well as an ethical advisory committee report to be submitted to the European Commission as a deliverable.

SEAC Members have been selected and approved by the Steering Committee on the basis of pre-defined criteria to ensure that the composition of the board is appropriate to provide the guidance required to achieve Inno4Vac goals.

The SEAC is currently composed of seven experts in the Inno4Vac topic fields from prestigious universities and research centers, and includes:

  • Ali Ellebedy, Washington University School of Medicine (USA)

  • Maxime M. Mahe, INSERM (FR)

  • Marie-José Quentin-Millet, consultant (FR)

  • Veronique Chatteau, Royal Institute of Technology (SE)
