Modality Solutions has announced its sponsorship and roundtable leadership at the 17th Annual World Vaccine Congress (WVA) in Washington, DC.

Taking place from 10 April 10 to12 April at the Grand Hyatt, the congress promotes research, development, and strategic partnering for the global vaccine industry.

Principal at Modality Solutions Daniel Littlefield will lead an interactive roundtable discussion on the first day at 11:20.

The discussion will include management of multiple temperature ranges from <-60°C to 8°C, transport and storage with minimal infrastructure to remote depots and clinical trial sites, and compliance by partnering with the local regulatory authorities.

Daniel said: "I invite Congress attendees to join my interactive roundtable.

"Come and learn practical solutions for the real-world challenges that led to a flawless execution of the STRIVE Ebola clinical trial in sub-Saharan Africa with zero temperature excursions."

Modality Solutions’ president Gary Hutchinson said: "Our sponsorship and participation in the WVA supports our continued commitment to work with vaccine experts from top pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies worldwide.
