WHO monkeypox research: what are the knowledge gaps and priority research questions?

Date/Time: 02 June 2022 from 13h00 to 16h50 (CEST)

The WHO R&D Blueprint is organizing a consultation over two-days to discuss knowledge gaps and priority research questions for monkeypox research.

During this forthcoming consultation global experts will review the available evidence in terms of:

  • Our understanding the dynamics of monkeypox transmission and epidemiology and the clinical characteristics of the disease.
  • Available evidence regarding therapeutics, diagnostics and vaccines licensed and under development.
  • Novel approaches for evaluation of monkeypox therapeutics and vaccines.
  • Country perspectives in terms of research priorities and opportunities.

Daniel Bausch, Senior Director of Emerging Threats and Global Health Security at FIND will present an overview of available diagnostics and those in the pipeline as well as discuss laboratory research needs.
