BACKGROUNDER INFORMATION

Life Sciences Discovery Fund 08-02 Program Proposals

Lawrence Corey, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, $4,727,296

Program title: Washington Vaccine Alliance

Program focus: To develop an integrated, multi-institutional program to stimulate discovery and development of vaccines for widespread use

Scientific and financial constraints throughout the vaccine development process result in delays and high product costs that limit the public health impact of candidate vaccines. Because of these challenges, the firms that develop vaccines do so only when validated animal tests or human clinical trials demonstrate a likelihood of success. The Washington Vaccine Alliance will bring a shared translational research framework and interdisciplinary expertise to vaccine economics, design, formulation, testing, materials production, immune response assessment, and product planning.

Three specific vaccine projects will be initially addressed. One in five adults in Washington State is infected with the herpes simplex virus (HSV)-2. Infectious syphilis cases have doubled in the United States since 2000 and E. coli contamination continues to be a persistent problem in the nation's food sources. Each of these disease agents costs Washington and the nation billions of dollars in treatment and care.

Collaborating organizations: Battelle, Pacific Northwest Division; Infectious Disease Research Institute, Program for Appropriate Technology in Health, Seattle Biomedical Research Institute, University of Washington, Washington State University

Thomas Rea, Seattle & King County Department of Public Health, $2,653,031

Program title: Program to Integrate Technology and Cardiac
