Individuals eligible to become Principal Investigators
U.S. applicants must apply with a developing country institution with which they have a demonstrable history of research collaboration. Developing country applicants should apply in collaboration with U.S. institutions capable of enhancing their proposed training opportunities. Applicants must have a strong infectious disease research program in the scientific area proposed for research training and the requisite faculty and facilities to carry out the proposed training activities. Applicants must be designated as the Principal Investigator of at least one active infectious disease research grant (with at least 18 months of support remaining at the time of application), from the NIH or other national or international research support organization, directly relevant to the research training proposed.
The training programs include a variety of research training options to match the needs of the developing country institution. The ultimate goal is to build a critical mass of researchers and support staff to conduct independent infectious disease research in developing country institutions.
Training programs may include:
