CDC's collaboration with the Association of Public Health Laboratories announces two supplemental funding opportunities.
These funding opportunities will be awarded for Advanced Molecular Detection and Vision 2020 - Focus Group Discussions.The purpose of the Advanced Molecular Detection
Project is to support state laborartory capacity building to improve characterization of the influenza vaccine viruses by a minimum of two weeks.
This project will ensure that the prerequisite infrastructure is available for full production of genomic sequencing prior to the 2016 Influenza season.
The anticipated funding for this activity is $620,00 0. The Vision 2020 Focus Group Discussions will support the Laborartory Systems and Standards Program to develop best practices and performance quality standards.
Develop guidance and tools that assist Public Health Laboratories with developing and supporting regional networks and consortiums for effective sharing of testing and other services that will improve preparedness through established test-sharing mechanisms.
The anticipated funding level for this activity is $25,00 0.
