NIH: National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Diseases – Accelerating Discovery of Efficacious Pre-Erythrocytic Stage Malaria Vaccines

Award Title: Accelerating Discovery of Efficacious Pre-Erythrocytic Stage Malaria Vaccines

CALHN Internal Closing Date: 10 December 2019

This opportunity uses the U01 (Clinical Trial Not Allowed) Research Project – Cooperative Agreements funding mechanism.

The purpose of this initiative is to stimulate basic research, discovery, and early translational research to enable and accelerate the generation of highly efficacious pre-erythrocytic stage malaria vaccines, including sporozoite-based vaccines.

Cross-fertilization and collaboration among investigators from malaria vaccine research and other basic research areas such as parasite biology, parasite genomics, pathogenesis, and host immunology are highly encouraged. The goal is to generate one or more promising vaccine candidates against human malaria that exhibit performance superior to currently available sporozoite-based vaccines and are suitable for further downstream process development and future clinical evaluation

FUNDING AND DURATION
