Veterinary vaccine development aided by new website


The UK Immunological Toolbox website is now live to promote veterinary immunology and vaccine research.

The new UK Immunological Toolbox website aims to remove barriers to veterinary vaccine development by facilitating accurate information exchange and collaboration.
This website is now the most up to date and comprehensive repository available, hosting information on reagents and resources.

Scientific community engagement
The website is searchable using molecule name, species name or specific antibody name. A detailed but simple application table is displayed for each reagent, which enables researchers to easily establish their utility and rate them.
Community engagement is a key component to maximising the utility of this website – registered users can comment and submit supporting data, references and other evidence that allows the community to better understand the utility of any reagent listed.

On-going development
More reagents and species will be included as further information on unique institutional collections is received from around the world, including genetic information.
The development of the new website, supported by the UKRI Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council through the Global Challenges Research Fund, is an output from the activities of the UK Immunological Toolbox initiative.
