NIH Opportunity: Computational Models of Influenza Immunity

Funding Opportunity Number: RFA-AI-23-056

Deadline: January 26, 2024


The purpose of this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to support the development of computational models and immunologic studies that will advance our understanding of the requirements for improving anti-influenza immunity, including inducing broad immune protection, and enhancing immune durability that will inform design of universal or improved seasonal flu vaccines. Projects are expected to lead to a better understanding of how pre-existing immunity and repeat exposures (natural infection and/or vaccines) shape an individual’s immune “landscape.” Predictive modeling of adjuvants/vaccine formulations and experimental validation supported through this program also can enhance host immune responses and provide foundational information for further development of universal and improved seasonal influenza vaccines.
