MRC and BBSRC: Research consortia to underpin proactive vaccinology

  Monday, 14 Nov 2022 | Funding Deadline

Apply for funding to establish research consortia to underpin proactive vaccinology. There remains a critical need for fundamental research to underpin future vaccine development. With SARS-CoV-2, there is clear evidence of waning protection against infection from first-generation vaccines, driving the emergence of new variants capable of further escaping existing immunity. More broadly, key questions remain unanswered about the nature and drivers of pathogen evolution and immune responses to vaccination. Without this knowledge, we cannot overcome the barriers to development of next-generation vaccines with broader, more durable and, optimally, transmission-blocking efficacy. With this in mind, the purpose of this funding opportunity is to support consortia to tackle these questions.

Deadline for proposals: 14 November 2022
