Global Infectious Disease Research Training Program Award
Proposals are being requested for innovative, collaborative research training programs that would contribute to the long-term goal of building sustainable research capacity in endemic infectious diseases at developing country institutions.
The announcement purpose is to invite applications from developing country institutions to train or expand the capabilities of scientists and health professionals from developing countries to engage in infectious diseases (excluding HIV/AIDS) research.
The total amount to be awarded is between $600,000 and $1 million per year.
The intent is to harness scientific knowledge and skills to enhance prevention, treatment, and control of infectious diseases causing major morbidity and mortality in developing countries.
Developing country institutions may also apply for one-year planning grants to support the development and submission of research training program proposals in the subsequent year.
In addition, ongoing infectious disease research training awardees may apply for a competing revision (formerly called supplement) award to their Global Infectious Disease Research Training awards to expand their training activities.
FIC will support research-training programs that focus on building sustainable non-HIV/AIDS infectious disease research capacity at an institution in an endemic developing country.
