Project Number: 0210-22310-004-95
Specific Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Sep 30, 2013
End Date: Mar 31, 2016
The objective of this effort is to support the engagement of USDA collaborative research with ILRI and partner institutions engaged in research that addresses the development of new generation vaccines, diagnostic tests, management strategies and drugs for diseases of critical importance including Rift Valley fever (RVF), foot-and-mouth disease (FMD), and other diseases of strategic importance; and animal genomics and genetics approaches to food animal improvements.
ILRI will participate in and/or help support activities that underpin the establishment and implementation of collaborative research and supporting activities, such as establishing sub agreements with relevant NARS, developing publications, co-organizing and supporting attendance at meetings and facilitating working groups that support research cooperation that would help to meet the objective. These activities will be identified in consultation with, and under the agreement of, the ADODR and ARS cooperators.
