The Department of Biotechnology (DBT) is implementing the Ind-CEPI mission titled ‘India Centric Epidemic Preparedness through Rapid Vaccine Development: Supporting Indian Vaccine Development Aligned with the Global Initiative of the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI)’ to strengthen development of vaccines for the diseases of epidemic potential in India.
CEPI is a global alliance financing and coordinating the development of vaccines against infectious diseases. From time to time, CEPI issues calls for proposals inviting applicants to submit funding proposals for projects to develop specific vaccine candidates or research that can directly support vaccine development.
Presently, CEPI has an open call for proposals for Information for CfP2R Applicants - platform technologies to rapidly respond to Disease X. This call invites applications for the development of innovative platform technologies that can be used to develop vaccines and other immunoprophylactics to rapidly respond to future outbreaks of emerging infectious diseases and unknown pathogens, known as “Disease X”.
DBT solicits participation of Indian scientist for submission of applications to CEPI under the call.
