Sponsor:    National Institutes of Health

Deadline:   October 16, 2010

            Scientific cooperation between India and the U.S. has taken place under a variety of bilateral umbrella
            agreements, including the Indo-U.S. Science and Technology (S&T) Sub-Commission, the Gandhi-
            Reagan S&T Initiative, the U.S.-India Fund, and the current S&T Cooperation Agreement. Building
            upon these agreements and initiatives, representatives of the United States and the Government of
            India signed a Memorandum of Understanding on July, 9 1987 implementing the Indo -U.S. Vaccine
            Action Program (VAP) in order to expand collaborative vaccine research. The goal of the VAP is to
            support collaborative vaccine-related research projects that ultimately reduce the burden of infectious
            diseases of importance in India, the U.S., the South Asian region and globally. Applications are
            encouraged from organizations/institutions that propose to conduct vaccine -related research through
            well-established collaborations with Indian investigators on the following: dengue, influenza (including
            avian influenza), HIV/AIDS, and tuberculosis. Basic, translational, clinical, or epidemiological vaccine
            research may be proposed. Clinical trials will not be supported by this initiative.
