Question 3: Short-term Objective E  

Fiscal Year: 2010

Yellow dot: Objective has some degree of funding, but less than the recommended amount.3SE. Support at least two studies to determine if there are subpopulations that are more susceptible to environmental exposures (e.g., immune challenges related to infections, vaccinations, or underlying autoimmune problems) by 2012. IACC Recommended Budget: $8,000,000 over 2 years.
