Advancing Research on Epidemic-Prone Diseases
ISIDORe Calls and Services to Support Researchers
DATE: 29 November, 2022 – 2-3:30 PM CET, Online Event
The ISIDORe coordination team is pleased to invite to its second information webinar to provide you with information about its new preparedness calls for proposals and application modalities, as well as to answer your questions.
Following its responsiveness calls for proposals dedicated to SARS-CoV-2 and Monkeypox virus the ISIDORe consortium has recently launched its preparedness programme which includes a list of priority preparedness pathogens clustered in four calls for proposals.
To try to prevent future pandemics, and advance the development of the appropriate medical countermeasures, the ISIDORe preparedness programme four calls for proposals will support research on the pathogens with epidemic potential 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 their vectors
Other pathogens with epidemic potential (pathogen X, Orthopoxviruses, Non polio enteroviruses, Polio enteroviruses)
Participation in the event is free, but registration is required.
For those who could not attend the first information webinar, the presentations and video are available below.
