The Biomedical Research Response to COVID-19: A View from NIAID
NIH COVID-19 SIG Lecture Series NIAID has a long-standing dual mandate to maintain a robust portfolio of research in its key focus areas and to respond to emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases (EIDs). With this mandate, NIAID has also sought to improve EID-response preparedness, working in partnership with other U.S. government research entities, industry, academia, and international public-health organizations. This preparedness planning helped the institute respond rapidly to COVID-19. NIAID tapped existing coronavirus expertise and other assets to stand up research programs spanning basic virology and immunology ...

Joseph J. Kinyoun Memorial Lecture - Antibodies Against Ebola and Lassa: A Global Collaboration
Joseph J. Kinyoun Memorial Lecture 2017 Dr. Erica Ollmann Saphire, director of the Viral Hemorrhagic Fever Immunotherapeutic Consortium (VIC), will deliver the 2017 Joseph J. Kinyoun Memorial Lecture. Her talk, “ Antibodies Against Ebola and Lassa: A Global Collaboration, ” will explore the features of antibodies that protect against these deadly viruses and the ongoing need for scientists to collaborate in this research to establish a complete knowledge base. During the past three years, VIC researchers from dozens of labs on five continents have studied these protective antibodies. The VIC aims to fill critic...

Clinical Trial Designs for Emerging Infectious Diseases (Day 2)
The Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) epidemic has highlighted the importance of being able to rapidly evaluate investigational products during a public health emergency, including in resource limited settings. It is generally agreed that access to early investigational interventions that have not yet been well characterized should be provided in a setting that allows for the reliable assessment of benefits and harms. Ascertaining the safety and efficacy of an investigational product is an important step that is necessary to protect and promote the public health now and in the future. A critical aspect of the response effort is th...

NIH Research Festival: A Celebration of Intramural Science Plenary Session II: Responding to Public Health Emergencies
This plenary session will focus on the many ways that the NIH Intramural Research Program (IRP) has served a crucial role in various public health emergencies. From assessing radiation dangers after the Japanese tsunami and nuclear accident, to developing an Ebola vaccine and treating infected individuals, to tracing the origins of recent food-borne disease outbreaks through genomic analysis, the NIH IRP continues to be among the "first responders" to protect the nation's and the world's health.For more information go to http://researchfestival.nih.gov/2015/plenary_sessions.shtmlAir date: 9/17/2015 10:15:00 AM (S...
