Vaccines are critical to the eradication of infectious diseases worldwide. To achieve the FHI Clinical vision of a world where advances in vaccines help all people live longer, healthier lives, we’ve spent years honing our processes to respond to the urgency and complexity of vaccine trials, developing our global network of research-ready investigators and sites, and partnering with leading public and private medical research organizations, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, academic institutions, governments and non-governmental organizations.
In this webinar, our panel of Africa-based researchers discuss the strong clinical research foundation, the community-centered approach and increasing regulatory harmonization in Africa. Watch to learn about the continent’s population diversity, expanding therapeutic area expertise and long-standing stakeholder engagement.
To achieve our vision of a world where advances in vaccines help all people live longer, healthier lives, we’ve honed our processes to respond to the urgency and complexity of vaccine trials, developed our global network of investigators and sites, and partnered with organizations across public, private, academic and government sectors.
Our broad expertise, end-to-end services and ability to begin immediate collaboration with government, commercial and academic partners in more than 60 countries make us uniquely positioned to support the COVID-19 response. We address emerging pandemics, epidemics and outbreaks with expertise that supports health and research efforts globally. We are experienced in addressing the complex aspects of infectious diseases — from infection prevention and control to clinical research on diagnostics, vaccines and treatment.
For more than 10 years, the FHI Clinical project team has partnered with companies developing and deploying vaccines, treatments and preventive devices for malaria in 35 countries worldwide.
FHI Clinical has long-standing relationships, a local team and broad expertise in sub-Saharan Africa. We're ready to help you confidently expand your research across the region, finding the best-fit countries and populations for your target indication and study type.
In this plenary discussion, experts in infectious diseases discuss how real-world epidemiology data, site capacity data and biosurveillance methodology could help identify TB-prevalent populations during protocol design, helping to ensure an adequate sample for TB vaccine development.
The Partnership for Research on Vaccines and Infectious Diseases in Liberia (PREVAIL) network was established through a partnership between local Liberian and international partners, including the U.S. National Institutes of Health, World Health Organization and FHI Clinical, to provide sustainable research infrastructure to address diseases of public health importance.
The study team maintained a 91% retention rate in a study of a Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) vaccine, despite study disruptions due to natural disasters, including Hurricane Maria, and political unrest near the sites in five Caribbean countries in a CHIKV endemic region.
To address the urgency of vaccine development during a pandemic, innovative strategies are implemented across study design, regulatory processes, recruitment process and more. In this e-book, we describe some of those innovations and argue for incorporating these into the fabric of clinical trials — to establish a “new normal.”
