Evaluation of Rabies Virus Vectored Ebola Vaccine
Pennsylvania, USA
United States of America
To design and evaluate a thermostable Rabies Virus Vectored Ebola Vaccine. As Ebola exists in some of the poorest parts of the world where the climate is tropical, the development of a thermostable vaccine could be cost-effective, resulting in greater long-term vaccine stability in high ambient temperatures.

Childhood Immunization Champions Award Fund

The CDC Childhood Immunization Champion Award is an annual award given jointly by CDC and the CDC Foundation to recognize individuals across the United States who make a significant contribution toward improving public health through their work in childhood immunization. 

Vaccination is the best way to protect children against 14 serious diseases before they turn two years old, but not all children receive the appropriate vaccines according to CDC’s recommended immunization schedule. Champions work hard in their communities to make sure children are protected against vaccine-preventable diseases. The Champion Award honors those who are doing an exemplary job or going above and beyond to promote or foster childhood immunization programs in their communities.

Each year, immunization program managers for health departments across the country are encouraged to nominate one individual from their state, district or territory to receive the Childhood Immunization Champion Award. CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases confirms states’ recommendations and issues awards during National Infant Immunization Week, the last week in April. Award recipients—past and present—are listed on CDC’s website.

To determine the performance characteristics of tacrolimus-based (TAC) genotyping in comparison to conventional genotyping assays to better assess the role of different enteric pathogens in diarrhea requiring hospitalization among children less than five years of age. The technology will advance the analysis of rotavirus vaccine effectiveness studies by revealing how often cases of rotavirus vaccine failure are actually infections due to other enteric pathogens.
