Research Program

Three research themes form the pillars of the WRCE scientific portfolio. They are:


Research Theme members participate in monthly meetings, which are designed to foster interactions and exchanges of ideas, and to promote the host–pathogen biology-based development of novel vaccines and diagnostics.

In addition to research projects that are included in one of the three themes, the WRCE was awarded an American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) Research Project that transitioned into a Concept Acceleration Program (CAP) award in 2011.

Please click on the Theme and CAP navigation buttons on the left-hand side of this page, and follow the links to access descriptions of individual projects. Projects beginning with “RP” are major Research Projects; projects beginning with “DP” are 2-year Developmental Projects; and projects beginning with “CD” are Career Development Projects.
