Wake Forest Vaccine Center Seeks UNC or Duke Collaborators

Vaccine Center Seeks Collaborators for Childhood Vaccine Project

The Wake Forest Vaccine Center (WFVC) is soliciting applications for a $25,000 pilot project that involves a collaboration between researchers at Wake Forest University and either University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) or Duke University. Applications may be submitted for any research project that addresses vaccines for neonates, infants, children or young adults. We highly encourage cross-programmatic collaborations for these projects.

The Wake Forest Vaccine Center is particularly interested in projects that focus on the use of Wake Forest University nonhuman primate resources, translational research, novel technology platforms, and new investigator pairings; however, all ideas in childhood vaccines will be considered. It is expected that these pilot funds will catalyze new ideas that allow investigators to pursue projects with likelihood for extramural funding. One award will be issued for up to $25,000 for one year. No Cost Extensions will not be considered.
