Department of Industry, Innovation and Science - Australian Tropical Medicine Commercialisation Programme

Commercial Development of a pan-species multistage vaccine for malaria

Indicative Funding
$1,057,480 over 4 years
Summary
AITHM will use the funding to achieve five sequential aims; 1. Establish a joint venture with WEHI for the commercial development of a pan-species, multi-stage vaccine for the malaria eradication agenda; 2. Undertake process development towards GMP manufacturing of the synthetic saccharide vaccine target; 3. Undertake process development towards GMP conjugation of the synthetic saccharide vaccine target to GMP grade CRM carrier; 4. Undertake rigours stability and pre-clinical toxicology testing of the vaccine product; and 5. Undergo regulatory affairs (TGA/FDA) compliance

Australian Research Council - Special Research Initiatives Scheme

Australian Institute of Tropical Health and Medicine

Indicative Funding
$42,000,000 over 4 years
Summary
AITHM intends to build Australian research capacity in tropical health and biomedical sciences, to improve national capacity to identify risks to health security and biosecurity from re-emerging infectious diseases prevalent in tropical countries, and to undertake research which targets improvements in health outcomes and service delivery for regional, remote, and under-served communities in tropical Australia. This requires expansion of tropically based research facilities, the researcher skill base, and research programs.

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation - New Interventions in Global Health

Pre-clinical development of a pan-species, multi-stage universal vaccine for the malaria eradication agenda

Indicative Funding
$2,808,160
Summary
We propose to develop a broad-spectrum `universal? vaccine effective against infective sporozoites, disease-causing blood-stages and transmissible sexual stages of most species of human malaria. If successful in preventing infection, reducing disease and blocking transmission, this vaccine may satisfy the ideal Target Product Profile for a critical vaccine tool in global malaria eradication.

NHMRC - Equipment Grant

Biological Safety Cabinets

Indicative Funding
$28,849
Summary
The following equipment will be purchased: 2 x CABINET: 1800 Class 2 BSC; 1 x CABINET: 1200 Class 2 BSC ? The purchase of these Biological Safety Cabinets will provide fundamental infrastructure that will be of use to all research groups wishing to utilise the new AITHM research facilities, based on James Cook University?s Townsville campus. ? The equipment will be available for an array of medical research activities including work involving microbiology, immunology and virology. ? AITHM is actively fostering collaborative research activities, including working with Charles Darwin University, Central Queensland University, and international research bodies.
