ISIDORe launches 4 additional calls for proposals

Following its rapid research response calls for proposals dedicated to SARS-CoV-2  (still open) and Monkeypox virus (Pre-application deadline: now closed), ISIDORe (Integrated Services for Infectious Disease Outbreak Research) has launched its preparedness programme calls for proposals for free of charge access to the consortium facilities and services.

To prevent future pandemics, and advance the development of the appropriate medical countermeasures, the ISIDORe preparedness programme includes a list of priority preparedness pathogens clustered in four calls for proposals to support research on the epidemic-prone pathogens such as Risk-Group 4 pathogens (Ebola virus, Marburg virus, Nipah virus, Hendra virus, Lassa virus, “New world arenaviruses”, CCHF virus); Respiratory Pathogens (zoonotic betacoronaviruses, Influenza A, Y. Pestis, M. Tuberculosis/bovis, C. burnetii ); Vector-borne Pathogens (Rift valley fever virus, Zika virus, Chikungunya virus, West Nile virus, Dengue virus, Japanese encephalitis virus, Yellow fever virus, Tick-borne encephalitis virus, Plasmodium, B. burgdorferi, Leishmania); and other pathogens with epidemic potential (pathogen X, Orthopoxviruses, Non polio enteroviruses, Polio enteroviruses).

ECRIN is available to consult on the implementation of multinational clinical trials in these areas. For the initial call on SARS-CoV-2 & COVID-19 ECRIN is also supporting access to the European-funded platform trials.
