Abstract

For several complex pathogens, we have an incomplete understanding of the kind of immune response we need an effective vaccine to induce. In part this is because these pathogens live inside cells and can hide from the host immune response. This makes it very difficult to develop vaccines against these pathogens. The diseases caused by these pathogens, including tuberculosis (TB), leprosy, leishmaniasis and melioidosis, disproportionately affect people in low and middle-income countries (LMICs) and are often neglected due to the poor predicted commercial return and marginalisation of affected populations. The current approach to vaccine development is to identify a part of the immune response that might be important, develop vaccines that induce that kind of immune response and then test that vaccine to see if it works, first in animal models and then in human clinical trials. This approach does not work for these complex pathogens and is slow and inefficient. In this Network we will adopt an iterative approach and develop more accurate working models of the immune response by cycles of repeated integration of data from human clinical studies and animal models across the different pathogens. The inclusion of vets working in large animal models will mean the results obtained are relevant for the development of animal vaccines as well. The inclusion of partners from LMIC where these diseases are endemic, together with partners from industry will help ensure real world relevance. Furthermore, the smaller animal models will allow us to easily look at single components of the immune system. The insight gained into immune mechanisms will allow us to design and develop vaccines more efficiently and more effectively.

This Network will provide a unique opportunity to bring together individuals working on four exemplar complex intracellular pathogens (M.tb, M.leprae, Leishmania spp. and B.pseudomallei), which share a common lifestyle as pathogens that live in a particular host cell called macrophages, induce similar end-stage pathologies in humans and are known to affect host immune and metabolic responses. The horizontal collaborations established throughout this network, together with the provision of a protected environment for early data sharing, will exploit the biological synergies between these pathogens. Positive and negative results can be disseminated rapidly, and partners working on each of the complex diseases can learn from the successes and failures of those working on the other diseases. By understanding mechanisms that lead from infection to disease, we plan to uncover common approaches to inform vaccine development strategies for these and other complex intracellular pathogens.

Key Network activities and deliverables include annual meetings for knowledge sharing; creation of a virtual network for real-time data sharing; pump-priming funding to fill knowledge gaps, and provide data to enhance the competitiveness of larger grant applications; a website and other communications to enhance collaborations and research dissemination; and career development by funding, training and mentoring of early post-doctoral and new PI researchers. All activities work towards more effective vaccine development for these important diseases, and the improvement of research capabilities in our partner LMICs.

Technical Summary

For several complex intracellular pathogens, we have an incomplete understanding of protective immunity. These diseases, including TB, leprosy, leishmaniasis and melioidosis, disproportionately affect LMICs and are often neglected due to the poor predicted commercial return and marginalisation of affected populations. The current linear approaches, which identify a component of the immune response, induce it by vaccination and evaluate efficacy in animal models and clinical trials, are flawed and have proven inefficient for intracellular pathogens. In this Network we will adopt an iterative approach and develop accurate working models of immunity by repeated integration of data from human experimental studies and animal models across the different pathogens. Veterinary vaccinologists and large animal models will facilitate the One Health agenda, and experimental medicine studies and LMIC and industrial partners will ensure relevance and translational value. The smaller animal models will provide the tools with which to easily dissect mechanisms and immune pathways. The integrated approach incorporates in-silico and in-vitro tools to delineate mechanisms, that will feed directly into vaccine design and development.

This Network will provide a unique opportunity to bring together individuals working on four exemplar complex intracellular pathogens (M.tb, M.leprae, Leishmania spp. and B.pseudomallei), which share a common lifestyle as pathogens of macrophages, induce similar end-stage pathologies (granulomatous inflammation, tissue remodeling) and alter host immune and metabolic responses. The horizontal collaborations established throughout this network, together with the provision of a protected environment for early data sharing, will exploit the biological synergies. By interrogating mechanisms that lead from infection to disease, we plan to uncover common approaches to inform vaccine development strategies for these and other complex intracellular pathogens.

Planned Impact

There are many beneficiaries of the work carried out under this Network.

The first obvious beneficiaries of this work are basic scientists, clinicians, veterinarians, epidemiologists and clinical trial investigators working in the field of vaccinology, particularly vaccines for the exemplar pathogens that are the focus of this Network. The scientific data sharing, pump-priming funding, and support to existing and new collaborations that are all supported by this Network will lead to new scientific insights which will facilitate vaccine research and development. The networking activities are designed to maximise the impact of the Network. Furthermore, the academic community will gain from the training, mentoring and knowledge sharing that will occur as part of this network.

Industrial colleagues in vaccinology will also benefit from this work, both in SMEs and in large pharmaceutical companies. Industrial involvement in these complex pathogens is currently limited, in part because of a predicted poor return on investment. This Network aims to 'de-risk' vaccine development by providing novel insights into host immunity and in sharing across pathogens any lessons learned so the broader applicability of any novel findings can be rapidly evaluated.

Ultimately, this Network will 'de-risk' vaccine development for complex intracellular pathogens and allow the design and development of vaccine candidates that are more likely to succeed. The development of effective vaccines for any of the pathogens outlined here would have a very significant impact on global mortality and morbidity, particularly in LMIC where these diseases are endemic. The health and ultimately wealth of LMIC will improve with the development of effective vaccines against these devastating pathogens.

Policy makers, in the UK and LMIC, together with the funders of scientific research, also have the potential to benefit from the work outlined in this Network. The insights gained will allow better selection and prioritisation of vaccine candidates at an earlier stage, and a greater likelihood of success.

Title VALIDATE Data Sharing Portal and VALIDATE Research Data Analyst 
Description In January 2019 we launched the VALIDATE Data Sharing Portal, which aims to facilitate and encourage the sharing of published and unpublished data amongst our members, to enable cross-comparisons (e.g. of similar assays across pathogens, or across assays for one pathogen, or across species or countries) that will accelerate vaccine development, as well as to avoid duplication of effort where unpublished negative data already exists. Our VALIDATE Research Data Analyst is in charge of the database and will further optimise its processes, and is facilitating the uploading and analyses of data by our members. Our Research Data Analyst, Dr Deniz Cizmeci, moved to a post-doc position at Harvard University in early May 2019 and we had significant challenges recruiting an appropriate replacement, with no appointable candidates in three rounds of advertisement. Our fourth round resulted in an appointable candidate, who started in post on 1 January 2020. This means we had a gap of eight months in this post that was beyond our control, but moved this area of the Network forwards with our new VALIDATE Bioinformatician/Computational Biologist, Dr Mirvat Surakhy, who was in post from March 2020.

Results and Impact On 5-6 Sept 2017 we hosted our first VALIDATE Annual Meeting, with 35 members attending from 5 countries (UK, India, Brazil, Thailand, and Uganda), plus our 3 Scientific Advisory Board members. We awarded 3 travel scholarships to facilitate LMIC attendees. This was a fantastic opportunity for our members to meet face-to-face, many for the first time, and it gave our Management Team a chance to showcase VALIDATE and its aims, vision, and upcoming grant calls, as well as all the opportunities and benefits we provide for our members. We had talks by world-leading researchers about each of our focus pathogens (to spark cross-pathogen thinking), presentations by our industry partners (to spark academic-industry collaborations), a speed-dating session (to facilitate new collaborations and networking), as well as a session to find out what workshops our members would find useful, and a Dragons Den style session where we showcased the type of pump-priming projects VALIDATE was looking for (to encourage successful ideas and applications from our members), followed by a session that facilitated cross-pathogen discussion and idea sharing to set up future pump-priming ideas. We had positive feedback from our members about the relevance and usefulness of this first meeting, and it was a very successful couple of days for jump-starting our Network and engaging our members in this new community.

Results and Impact On 6-7th November 2018, we held our 2nd Annual Meeting in York, UK. The meeting contained updates about VALIDATE, Prof Heidi Larson (LSHTM) talking about vaccine hesitancy, our pump-priming funded projects each giving an update about their research, as well as some animated and engaged networking to get our members meeting each other and sparking collaboration ideas. We had an ECR showcase, where our network's ECRs hosted posters outlining their current research and future career and research ambitions to facilitate and spark new collaborative relationships amongst our members and to network them with both their peers and senior scientists and PIs in VALIDATE. We also had an industry showcase where our industry members had posters highlighting their research experience and expertise, again to network them in with other members.

On day 2 we held a facilitated 'Ideas Laboratory' aiming to help our delegates think big to tackle vaccine development for our focus pathogens - what breakthroughs need to be achieved, what challenges need to be overcome, what do we need to start/stop/continue doing to achieve success? The room buzzed with energy as people exchanged ideas, gradually building up to concrete research project concepts that everyone worked collaboratively on to develop further, and some of which have been submitted as pump-priming grants in our subsequent round of funding.

62 delegates from 13 countries (Brazil, Cameroon, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Mozambique, Nepal, Nigeria, South Africa, Thailand, Uganda, UK, USA) attended, as well as two members of our SAB. We awarded 9 travel scholarships to LMIC members to encourage and facilitate their attendance (7 to female scientists), 7 or which were to ECRs.

The meeting had excellent feedback from our members. We also used the meeting to produce three short videos, showcasing VALIDATE to encourage further new members to join and to highlight the benefits of VALIDATE membership (viewable at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4jnwrHLkvK-xJjYJYpnYog).

Outputs include:
- (from the 2nd AM and the VALIDATE melioidosis 2019 workshop) a new collaboration between Prof Susanna Dunachie (PI - Oxford), Assoc Prof Paul Brett (Nevada), Assoc Prof Mary Burtnick (Nevada), Prof Helen McShane (Oxford) and Prof Narisara Chantratita (Mahidol) applied for and were awarded an MRC Biomedical Catalyst DPFS / US Defense Threat Reduction Agency grant, "Developing a vaccine for Burkholderia pseudomallei - a Phase I Clinical Trial" of £3,238,214 in 2020 (to 2023). This will be the first ever human clinical trial of a melioidosis vaccine.
This new collaboration have also been awarded a Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) Subaward "Developing a vaccine for Burkholderia pseudomallei - a Phase I Clinical Trial" (Brett PI, Dunachie Oxford subcontracting PI to value of $733,976.61(£524,269) to Dunachie lab) for 2020-2021, and a US Defense Threat Reduction Agency 2020-2021 award "Optimization of lead melioidosis and glanders vaccine formulations" Prof Paul Brett University of Nevada, Reno PI with sub-contract award to Dunachie, Oxford PI, (awarded in principle, awaiting contract) $733,976.61 USD (£524,269).
- During the 2nd Annual Meeting Facilitated 'Ideas Laboratory', Dr Barbara Kronsteiner-Dobramysl (University of Oxford ECR) was approached by Prof Javier Sanchez (IPN, Mexico) who also had an interest in immunometabolism and they formed a new collaboration, being successfully awarded a VALIDATE pump-priming grant in 2019.

Results and Impact From 30th September to 3rd October 2019, VALIDATE held three back-to-back events, our 2nd Early Career Researcher (ECR) Workshop (reported separately elsewhere), the 3rd VALIDATE Annual Meeting, and a VALIDATE-BSI Conference 'Vaccine Development for Neglected Intracellular Pathogens', at The Drum at Wembley, London. We welcomed just under 90 researchers, almost all VALIDATE members, from 19 countries (13 LMIC) worldwide.

On Tuesday 1st October the VALIDATE NMB and SAB held a closed face-to-face meeting, and then we kicked off the 3rd VALIDATE Annual Meeting. VALIDATE Director Prof Helen McShane welcomed our 78 delegates and Network Manager Samantha Vermaak gave an update on VALIDATE's activities over the last two years, and an insight into what's ahead for the Network, highlighting our final pump-priming call that closes on 22nd October 2019. We then had talks by our most recently funded round (#3) of pump-priming projects, with Prof Myron Christodoulides (University of Southampton) on 'Protective efficacy of conserved Leishmania hypothetical proteins against visceral leishmaniasis', Dr Barbara Kronsteiner-Dobramysl (University of Oxford) on 'Metabolic reprograming of skin microenvironment for improved BCG vaccine efficacy', Dr Sasha Larsen (IDRI) on 'Development of an RNA based vaccine against Mycobacterium tuberculosis', Dr Elena Stylianou (University of Oxford) on 'Developing a mouse model of diabetes to evaluate vaccines for TB and melioidosis', and Dr Julen Tomás Cortázar (University College Dublin) on 'Elucidating the T-cell epitopes and T-cell responses of two B.pseudomallei vaccine antigens'. These interesting talks showcasing the great research VALIDATE has coming up in the next 12 months were followed by Emilie Karafillakis (LSHTM) discussing the 'Monitoring and addressing challenging risks, rumours and reputations across the GCRF Vaccinology Networks' project co-funded by VALIDATE, IMPRINT and HIC-VAC, which aims to help all our members with vaccine hesitancy and media/online reputation management.

After lunch, our round #1 pump-priming projects (funded in November 2017) discussed their completed research, with Sally Hayward (SGUL/LSHTM) discussing 'Enhancing BCG efficacy: the Social Technology Lab Initiative', Dr Javier Salguero Bodes (PHE) 'The effect of BCG vaccination in immune responses against visceral leishmaniasis in a natural (canine) model of infection', Asst Prof Steven Smith (LSHTM) 'How do functional and metabolic characteristics of trained monocytes affect their anti-bacterial activity?', Dr Panjaporn Chaichana (MORU) 'Establishment of a functional assay panel to evaluate the role of antibodies in defence against melioidosis and tuberculosis', Dr Rajko Reljic (SGUL) 'Overcoming innate immune tolerance in the respiratory tract for optimal vaccine design', and Prof Bernardo Villarreal-Ramos (Aberystwyth University & APHA) 'Natural variation of the bovine lymph node microenvironment and its possible effect on BCG immunogenicity'. These projects had had some interesting scientific outputs that we look forward to seeing in publications soon, and some great career outcomes!

After a break, our Keynote speaker, Affiliate Prof Rhea Coler (IDRI) spoke about 'Novel TB and leprosy vaccines: from the lab bench to clinical trials' from an industry perspective. We closed the formal part of the day with a panel discussion by our funded pump-priming project awardees about their experiences applying for and receiving VALIDATE funding, and the lessons they have learned on the way.

Many of the delegates then joined a behind-the-scenes tour of Wembley Stadium, with two engaging and entertaining guides who soon had us all trying out the press box and running out of the tunnel into the stadium as two teams. The day closed with those delegates who wanted to chat further visiting nearby Zizzi's for dinner together.

The last morning of the Annual Meeting opened on Wednesday 2nd October with talks from two round #2 pump-priming projects (funded August 2018), with Mohamed Osman (University of York) on 'Identification of Leishmania donovani and Mycobacterium tuberculosis- derived proteins on the surface of infected macrophages that are associated with ADCC induction', and Prof Susie Dunachie (University of Oxford) with Asst Prof Jackie Cliff (LSHTM) and Patpong Rongkard (Oxford/MORU) on 'Vaccines to target people with diabetes: characterising the pathways of immune response to M.tuberculosis and B.pseudomallei in people with diabetes compared to non-diabetics'. We look forward to seeing the final data of these projects soon.

Results and Impact On 28 July 2017 we launched our VALIDATE Twitter account @NetworkVALIDATE. We post regularly about news, opinions and activities relevant to our Network members, including grant calls, training opportunities, events, journal articles, opinion pieces, tips/advice, and disease statistics from VALIDATE and relevant external organisations, to promote both our activities and items that could help our members advance their research and careers - or inform general public followers about our research, vaccine development, vaccine hesitancy etc. We highlight papers authored by our members, raising their profile and potential citations, as well as papers relevant to our members' research, making keeping up to date with new research in the field easier for our members. We also have social media engagement activities for World Leprosy Day, World NTD Day, International Day of Women & Girls in Science, World TB Day, Immunization Week and others, for instance for World TB Day 2020 we posted one tweet about TB every hour for the 24hours. To date we have 925 followers, which we hope will continue to increase, forming an engaged community.

Results and Impact On 28 July 2017 we launched the VALIDATE Network website www.validate-network.org. The website publicises our network, our members (including a searchable members' directory to facilitate new collaborations), our funding opportunities, events, our mentoring scheme, projects and grants we have funded, seminars and workshops provided, external funding and training/job opportunities relevant to our members, and a weekly round-up of new grant calls/jobs/training/events and news. According to Google Analytics, to date the website has been viewed by 73,000 users from 196 countries, with around 4,000 users per month in 2021.

Our aim is to make our website a central 'go to' hub for all relevant information for researchers working in our field (from academia, industry, government and non-profits), and for it to act as a hub of reliable information about vaccine research and our focus diseases for the general public and other interested parties. In 2018 we had 3 LMIC ECR members feedback outputs from our website information - one saw the Newton Travel Award listed in our external grants list and applied for and was awarded a grant; a second ECR member (from Uganda) applied for the "Data Management for Early Career Researchers" workshop in Nairobi that we listed in our training opportunities and was given a place and has now attended this course; while a 3rd ECR member from Cameroon applied for the Oxford University summer internship 2019 programme, having seen it advertised on the VALIDATE website. A further UK PhD (medical) student, when asked about any impact on career/research commented 'Easy notification of funding and training opportunities via validate website'.

In 2020 we also added a VALIDATE Microsoft Teams 'Hub' where members can more easily contact each other via several channels (including an ECR channel for ECR peer networking and support, and a collaborators channel for people looking for collaborators), and can access shared documents (including seminar recordings, Annual Meeting presentation slides, shared standardised SOPs and protocols).
