Determining the effectiveness of marketed drugs and vaccines, ensuring their safety, and improving the appropriateness of their use are longstanding, important societal challenges. Current activities focus on development of new knowledge, and of better local and national capabilities to perform collaborative research. We participate in several initiatives to develop distributed research networks to support therapeutics as well as other kinds of research and surveillance programs.
