SABER II Spotlight and Success Story

Program Purpose:

This program’s purpose is to support NAMRU-2 to improve disease surveillance activities, evaluate novel diagnostics products and therapeutic interventions, test disease control strategies, and develop local expertise via training to detect and respond to emergent disease threats. Vysnova’s goal is to understand and combat infectious diseases and vector-borne illnesses including Malaria, Dengue, Chikungunya as well as the burden and distribution of Swine Flu, Bird Flu, SARS-CoV-2, MERS-CoV, and other emerging infectious diseases.

Vysnovas Work:

Vysnova provides program management and administration to support NAMRU-2 in conducting biomedical, epidemiological, and clinical research efforts including human subject and animal use research projects around Southeast Asia with extension to East and South Asia countries. We also provide contracting services, project management, and staffing including SMEs (e.g., Biostatisticians, Malaria experts, Epidemiologists, etc.) to support the ongoing development, performance, and management of NAMRU-2 research in collaboration with host-country partners across the Southeast Asia (SEA) region.

The Vysnova Impact:

With the support ofVysnova, NAMRU-2 has improved their research productivity in the region. Vysnova has helped relieve NAMRU-2 scientists from program management, administrative and contractual burdens so they can focus more on the scientific aspects. With Vysnova’ s support, NAMRU-2 will be able to extend their research in infectious diseases and emerging diseases in the region in the future. Vysnova’s coordination results in a smooth transition between the client’s project officers ensuring compliance of FDR as well as host-country’s rules and regulations.
