Fundamental and applied research


The Institute fruitfully cooperates with the leading National and State Research Centers for Veterinary Medicine of the United States of America, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, the Netherlands, Slovakia, UK, Denmark, Poland, Serbia and CIS countries.

In order to create joint innovative projects, to promote scientific developments of the institution on the knowledge-intensive market of near and far abroad, and to raise investments, NSC "IECVM" takes an active part in realization of the International grants, funded via the Ukrainian Science and Technology Center, the Civil Research and Development Foundation (CRDF Global) and EU Framework Program (FP7, Horizon 2020, TAEIX, etc.).

The institute is actively working on establishing links between specialized laboratories and WHO, OIE and FAO reference centers and collabortive centers as well as with a number of national reference laboratories in the EU.

Fourteen scientific projects have been successfully completed, some of them namely :

  1. STCU Grant P 453 “Improvement of infectious animal diseases diagnostics basis (TB and Aujeszky disease)” (partner NPD, USA, duration 2008-2009, fund. STCU)
  2. Swiss National Science Foundation Project SCOPES (NF number IZ730Z0_128050: Epidemiology of BVD in Ukraine: Development of a control program, duration 2011- 2013)
  3. STCU Grant P 382a “Immunostimulation of chicken under plant derived immunostimulators” (Partner: Laboratory of Parasitic Diseases of Animals, Beltsville, Maryland, USA, duration 2011-2012, fund. STCU)
  4. DFFU Grant Study of opisthorchidoses epidemiology (Partner: Institute of Cytology and Genetic, Russia, duration 2011-2012)
  5.

DTRA)
  6. STCU Grant Р568 «Development of vaccines against Newcastle disease using recombinant DNA technology» (Partner: Exotic and Emerging Avian Viral Diseases Research Unit, Southeast Poultry Research Laboratory, USA, duration 2012-2014, fund. STCU)
  7. FY13 TAP-3 « Development and use of the express method for avian influenza virus diagnostics based on the reverse transcription-loop mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP)» (Partner: Center for Predictive Medicine, University of Louisville School of Medicine, USA, duration 2012-2013, fund. DTRA)
  8. State Agency on Science, Innovation & Informatization Grant «Collaboration research in the molecular epidemiology and diagnostic technique for PRRSV and BVDV disease» (Partner: Lanzhou Veterinary Research Institute, China, duration 2013-2014, fund. DKNII)
  9. FY13 Veterinary TAP-1 «Molecular characterization of emergency animal viral diseases agents, isolated in Ukraine in different periods (Highly pathogenic avian influenza virus and Newcastle disease virus)» (Partner: Center for Predictive Medicine, University of Louisville School of Medicine, USA, duration 2013-2014, fund. DTRA)
  10. ARS Grant 999X-14-60228-1 «Genomic, Epidemiological and Biological Characterization of Newcastle Disease Virus Isolates from Ukraine» (Partner: Exotic and Emerging Avian Viral Diseases Research Unit, Southeast Poultry Research Laboratory, USA, duration 2014-2015, fund. ARS), etc.

More than ten innovative projects focused on urgent problems of veterinary medicine (Biosafety and Biosecurity, Lumpy skin disease in cattle, Brucellosis, Multi-resistant Tuberculosis, Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza, Bovine Leukosis, Classical and African swine fevers, etc.) are now under consideration. US Innovation Assistance Programs for Newcastle disease, Avian Influenza and African swine fever have been sponsored by the United States.

NSC "IECVM" is the active participant in the implementation of the "Biological Threat Reduction Program", funded under the Implementation Agreement between the US Department of Defense and the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine and the National Academy of Agrarian Sciences of Ukraine. The areas of this collaboration include reconstruction of the laboratory facilities of the Institute, biosafety training and cooperative research projects with the US scientists.

NSC "IECVM" is actively involved in the execution of a number of European projects under the The EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation "Horizon 2020", in particular the AEDNet (2014-2017), ASF-STOP (2016-2018), MICRORisk (2014-2016) projects.

Bilateral projects with research institutes in Germany (IMB-GIZ GmbH) and in France (ANSES) are carring out.

The number of projects are presented to the G7 Global Partnership Initiative.
