Bristol Children's Vaccine Centre

The Bristol Children's Vaccine Centre (BCVC) is a group of doctors, nurses and scientists working together to develop new, better ways to prevent and treat infectious diseases.

We conduct commercial and non-commercial clinical trials to evaluate novel drugs and vaccines, from small early-phase safety studies through to larger efficacy trials.

We also carry out other clinical research studies to find out more about the naturally occurring carriage of bacteria and/or viruses in healthy individuals, and how this changes in illness.

This work can take the shape of large epidemiology-type studies or smaller lab-based research projects that use human tissue samples (blood, adenoids etc.). These are obtained via donations to the Bristol Biobank.
