The objective of this effort is to support the engagement of USDA collaborative research with ILRI and National research 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), MCF, foot-and-mouth disease (FMD), and other diseases of strategic importance.
ILRI will participate in and 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.
