International partnership supports vaccine research to prevent future outbreaks

“We are comparing antibody responses after different COVID-19 vaccines and after SARS-CoV-2 infection in adults and children from existing Canadian cohorts,” says Dr. Sadarangani. “This will provide insights on the mechanisms of vaccine protection and how we might improve responses to vaccines in general by modifying their design.”

Dr. Manish Sadarangani is among five Canadian scientists receiving funding for pandemic preparedness projects as part of a new partnership between the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI).

The Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, Canada’s Minister of Health, announced the partnership during National Immunization Awareness Week. The initiative will provide $2.7 million in grant funding to five Canadian researchers to pursue projects that will help prepare for future epidemic and pandemic threats. [MORE]
