Advancing Research on Epidemic-Prone Diseases
ISIDORe Calls and Services to Support Researchers
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)
