#4. Development of Vaccines for Selected Agents of Bioterrorism:

Responsive applications to scientific area "4." include those that propose to 
develop vaccines to prevent infection and/or disease from CDC Category A 
agents of bioterrorism (B. anthracis, Clostridium botulinum. Yersinia pestis, 
Variola major, Francisella tularensis and causative pathogens of viral 
hemorrhagic fevers).  Proposed research may fall anywhere along a broad 
spectrum of activities from candidate identification and validation through 
preclinical development and early human testing (Phase I and II trials).

Also note that applications relating to Influenza will also not be accepted 
under this PAR.  An announcement coming out in the next few months will apply 
to both the above areas.
