Healthy volunteers wanted for vaccine studies

Would you be willing to help in a research study on vaccines for mosquito-borne viruses?

We are studying the body's response to a family of viruses called "flaviviruses." These viruses include Zika, dengue and Japanese encephalitis. We are looking for volunteers to give blood samples to help with this research. Any healthy person can join. We need people who might be willing to have a vaccine as part of a study. If you've lived abroad in places where you might be naturally exposed to these viruses, like Asia, South America or Africa you can join too. If you're just curious you can join – come and talk to us!

You would need to answer some medical questions and give blood samples. Travel expenses will be reimbursed.

If you are interested in finding out more and deciding whether to take part, please contact

You are under no obligation to take part, and you can decide not to take part or to withdraw at any time.
