This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages applications for the Global Infectious Disease (GID) Research Training Program from U. S. and low- and middle-income country (LMIC) institutions.
The application should propose a collaborative research training program that will strengthen
the capacity of an LMIC institution to conduct infectious disease (excluding HIV/AIDS and select agents).
FIC will support research-training programs that focus on major endemic or life-threatening emerging infectious diseases, neglected tropical diseases, infections that frequently occur as co-infections in HIV infected individuals or infections associated with non-communicable disease conditions of public health importance in LMICs.
FIC will also support revisions to existing GID research training grants to support training for LMIC advanced post-doctoral researchers to conduct research on the relationship of infectious disease to chronic disease conditions of public health importance.
