Australia’s trusted independent immunisation experts

NCIRS leads, coordinates and participates in vaccine-related clinical research, in collaboration with other research institutions in Australia. This research aims to address gaps in knowledge to inform Australia’s immunisation policy for specific risk groups and management of adverse events following immunisation. Areas of clinical research include:

  • studies to assess the safety and immunogenicity of vaccines when used in 'understudied and special risk populations'  

  • investigation of novel vaccine schedules or strategies to improve vaccine coverage

  • studies on causes and outcomes of adverse events following immunisation.  

These studies are funded by philanthropic organisations or from competitive peer-reviewed grants.
