Institute for Vaccine Research and Development (IVReD)

The Institute for Vaccine Research and Development (IVReD) was established in October 2022 at the Creative Research Institution, Hokkaido university. IVReD was selected as a synergy center along with the University of Tokyo (Flagship center), Osaka University, Chiba University, and Nagasaki University (synergy centers) by the Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development (AMED)’s “Japan Initiative for World-leading Vaccine Research and Development Centers” projects. IVReD will prepare a library of pathogens, causing infectious diseases in humans, promote basic research for vaccine development, and attempt to develop vaccines and implement them in society in collaboration with institutions, companies, and universities.


In addition, we will contribute to the “rapid development and production system for Japanese vaccines” in outbreak of infection diseases by flexible response.
