NIAID International Research in Infectious Diseases (IRID) Program (R01)

Article excerpt

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) encourages the submission of R01 applications from institutions in eligible foreign countries to conduct studies and establish collaborative infectious diseases research among investigators and institutions at international sites where NIAID has significant investment in research and/or infrastructure (see below for list of NIAID programs). These grants will serve to build independent research capacity by providing direct funding to investigators who do not currently have NIAIDfunded grant awards for research projects. The intent of these activities is to advance the development of local scientific expertise, build local research infrastructure, and increase collaborative research partnerships at NIAID international sites.

Collaborative projects involving investigators and institutions from international sites and the United States are particularly encouraged; a U.S. partner is not required. NIAID has a long-standing interest in and commitment to global health and international research. Topics of interest for this program are limited to research on infectious diseases, including emerging infections that are of the greatest public health significance within the applicant country (e.g., tuberculosis, malaria, HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted diseases, diarrheal, respiratory, and enteric diseases, viral hemorrhagic fevers, viral encephalitides, parasitic diseases, and vector-borne diseases). Development of immunological, microbiological, biostatistical, epidemiological, and clinical research capacity is encouraged. Studies may be proposed on any aspect of infectious diseases (except clinical trials), including but not limited to the epidemiology, pathogenesis, immunopathogenesis of infectious diseases; epidemiologic studies to define the incidence, clinical presentations, and outcomes of diseases, identification of resistance patterns, characterization of susceptible cohorts for a particular pathogen; pilot and feasibility studies in preparation for larger studies.

NIAID supports a number of international research programs on infectious diseases, including HIV/AIDS. These include the International Centers of Excellence in Research (ICERs), International Collaborations for Infectious Disease Research (ICIDRs), the Tropical Medicine Research Centers (TMRCs), the Tuberculosis Research Program, the HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN), and the HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN).

This International Research in Infectious Diseases (IRID) Program (R01) is intended to extend these programs by expanding the breadth of research supported at international sites and by providing support to new researchers. …
