On 6 February 2018, the Academy of Medical Sciences, supported by HIC-Vac, the Medical Research Council and Wellcome, convened a workshop to discuss the current environment for human infection studies in the UK and internationally and whether any of the matters identified in a previous 2005 Academy of Medical Sciences report, ‘Microbial Challenge Studies of Human Volunteers’, merited re-examination.

The issues originally identified in the 2005 report included the need for guidance and oversight of the scientific, ethical, safety, legal and societal issues imparted by conducting human infection studies.

During the workshop, participants raised a number of points that they felt were pertinent to the current landscape for CHIM studies, see full details in the report on the right panel.
