Call for Transnational Collaborative Research Projects: “One Health Approach to Zoonoses Research and Innovation”
The International Coordination of Research on Infectious Animal Diseases (ICRAD) launches a call for proposals to support cross-cutting research and innovation to better understand zoonoses focusing on the animal-human-environment interface and by developing novel vaccine and diagnostics technology platforms to improve animal health and by consequence animal welfare.
The objective of this funding call is to increase preparedness and improve the ability to respond to (re)-emerging zoonotic disease threats and contribute to improved animal and public health.
This will be done through studies focusing on (re)-emergence of pathogens with zoonotic potential, understanding animal host-pathogen interactions and the immune response, and by developing detection and prevention platforms.
The pre-proposals should address one of the following research areas:
- Research area 1: Improved understanding of animal-human-environment interface
Pathogen (Re)-Emergence and Host Adaptation; Host/Pathogen Interactions
- Research area 2: Detection and Prevention
Vaccine Technology Platforms; Diagnostic Technology Platforms
