Solicitation Description

To address a capability readiness gap that has been identified within BARDA’s product portfolio responding to a viral pandemic event, BARDA is seeking to partner with laboratories with existing capabilities to perform centralized immune assays using samples collected from nonclinical studies and from subjects enrolled in influenza, SARS-CoV, and emerging infectious disease vaccine clinical trials conducted under the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Investigational New Drug (IND) applications and to perform cross-reactive immune response testing of clinical samples for pandemic preparedness and response.

Data from these assays may be used in primary, secondary, and exploratory endpoint analyses for vaccine clinical trials, cross-reactivity testing for pandemic readiness and response purposes, or perform correlates of protection analyses. Data may be used to support a U.S. FDA Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) or a Biological License Application (BLA).
