The Vaccine Evaluation Center collaborates with a variety of partners, including patients, researchers and community members, public health, industry, and government. We continue to build new partnerships to strengthen our research’s relevance and effectiveness, leading to more responsive and equitable immunization programs.

Action on Sepsis
Action on Sepsis is a transdisciplinary group tackling the complex issue of sepsis prevention, diagnosis, and management across the human lifespan.
Canadian Anti-infective Innovation Network (CAIN)
CAIN was formed with the purpose of leveraging innovative approaches and expertise to solve the expanding health crisis caused by Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) infections.
Canadian Association for Immunization Research and Evaluation (CAIRE)
CAIRE is a professional organization dedicated to enhance immunization research and program evaluation through education and collaboration among multidisciplinary experts in Canada and internationally.
Canadian National Vaccine Safety Network (CANVAS)
Each year, CANVAS quickly gathers safety information on the seasonal influenza vaccine and provides it to public health authorities. Over 40,000 individuals participate in this web-based active surveillance each year, providing an ability to detect events occurring at a rate of less than 1 in 10,000.
Canadian Immunization Research Network (CIRN)
CIRN is a national network of key vaccine researchers who develop and test methodologies related to the evaluation of vaccines as they pertain to safety, immunogenicity and effectiveness and program implementation and evaluation.
Coronavirus Variants Rapid Response Network (CoVaRR-Net)
CoVaRR-Net is a network of interdisciplinary researchers from institutions across the country created to assist in the Government of Canada’s overall strategy to address the potential threat of emerging SARS-CoV-2 variants.
Canadian Immunization Monitoring Program ACTive (IMPACT)
IMPACT is a paediatric hospital-based national active surveillance network for adverse events following immunization, vaccine failures and selected infectious diseases that are, or will be, vaccine preventable.
Sepsis Canada is multidisciplinary research network working towards reducing the burden of sepsis for all Canadians.
Researchers across UBC, including three researchers at the Vaccine Evaluation Center (Drs. Kollmann, Sadarangani, Gantt), are combining their expertise to use the systems vaccinology approach to study vaccine-induced immunity in great detail. Multiple global experts, based at UBC, are joining the UBC Systems Vaccinology platform to lead the world in vaccinology.
