CIBThe BARDA/USU Influenza Vaccine Biomanufacturing Training Course is a grant-funded training program designed for participants that come from foreign institutions in developing countries supported by the BARDA, World Health Organization (WHO), and Program for Appropriate Technologies in Health (PATH) influenza vaccine capacity building program. Funding for this program comes from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA).

One course will be conducted this year with scientists from many different countries who will receive training at Utah State University’s Center for Integrated BioSystems (CIB) state-of-the-art training facility in February. Subsequent years of funding are anticipated. USU’s CIB will provide and arrange logistical services (participant selection, transportation, housing, meals, cultural programs, etc).

This program is by invitation only and selected vaccine manufacturers overseas have been contacted already to nominate scientists for this training. For information regarding other training programs or to discuss the possibility of developing a new training program, please contact the CIB at (tel: 435-797-3504).
