Research to Advance Vaccine Safety (R21): PA-12-037
FOA PURPOSE: The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to support research that will contribute to the overall understanding of vaccine safety. This research opportunity invites studies that address scientific areas potentially relevant to vaccine safety such as 1) physiological and immunological responses to vaccines and vaccine components, 2) how genetic variations affect immune/physiological responses that may impact vaccine safety, 3) identification of risk factors and biological markers that may be used to assess whether there is a relationship between certain diseases or disorders and licensed vaccines, 4) creation/evaluation of statistical methodologies for analyzing data on vaccine safety, including data available from existing data sources such as passive reporting systems, or 5) the application of genomic/molecular technologies to improve knowledge of vaccine safety. This Program Announcement aligns with the research goals and objectives outlined in the U.S. National Vaccine Plan (http://www.hhs.gov/nvpo/vacc_plan/).
