Dept. of Health & Human Services

Do you have a research project in mind to help strengthen the current U.S. vaccine safety enterprise? Starting now—but ending on April 15, 2015—you have a unique opportunity to partner with us, the National Vaccine Program Office (NVPO), on research that will help us do just that.

What types of research are we seeking?
Some examples include vaccine safety-related research that
  • determines the safety profile of new vaccines during the early development stage,
  • develops or modifies existing vaccines to improve their safety,
  • directly impacts the current vaccine safety monitoring system, and/or
  • produces consensus definitions of vaccine safety outcomes that could be utilized to collect consensus data in clinical research conducted globally.
We particularly encourage submissions related to researching, establishing or testing the vaccine safety profile of vaccines that are either currently recommended for, or are expected to be, routinely administered to pregnant women and/or newborns.
What can you expect in terms of funding?
We have up to $250,000 to award you/your organization and anticipate choosing two awardees.
When should you apply?
As soon as possible—but, don’t worry, you have until April 15, 2015 to apply for funding.Check out for a detailed synopsis of the opportunity and to start the application package.

Do you have questions?
