Program Description

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) on the Human Immunology Project Consortium (HIPC) invites applications from single institutions, or consortia of institutions, to participate in a network of human immunology profiling research groups in the area of non-HIV infectious disease. Applications are sought that propose to study the human immune system (1) during or following infection, (2) before and after vaccination against an infectious disease, and/or (3) before and after administration of an infectious disease vaccine adjuvant that targets innate immune components. The purpose of this FOA is to capitalize on recent advances in immune profiling technologies to measure the diversity and commonalities of human immune responses under a variety of conditions using high-throughput systems biology approaches coupled with detailed clinical phenotyping in well-characterized human cohorts. The long-term goal is to develop molecular signatures that define immune response categories/fingerprints/profiles that correlate with the outcome of infection or vaccination.
