The purpose of this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to support innovative research to develop and apply computational tools and mathematical methods for:
1) modeling the spread of pathogens that cause healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) and related antimicrobial resistant (AR) infections;
2) predicting outbreaks of HAI pathogens and trends in the burden of antimicrobial resistant and susceptible HAIs; and 3) investigating the effectiveness of intervention strategies.
The models should be developed with the intent that they will be tools for researchers, policymakers, or public health workers who want to better understand and respond to HAIs in the United States.
This NOFO will also create a network of leaders in the fields of HAI and AR modeling that will be a resource for informing the development of relevant evidence-based policy.
MInD-Healthcare will provide a network of leading modelers to respond to evolving public health needs and emergencies in healthcare settings.

Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs): FFRDCs are operated, managed, and/or administered by a university or consortium of universities, other not-for-profit or nonprofit organization, or an industrial firm, as an autonomous organization or as an identifiable separate operating unit of a parent organization.
A FFRDC meets some special long-term research or development need which cannot be met as effectively by an agency's existing in-house or contractor resources.
FFRDC's enable agencies to use private sector resources to accomplish tasks that are integral to the mission and operation of the sponsoring agency.
