NIAID international research in infectious diseases (IRID) program (R01).The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID NIAID National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. ) 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 HIV/AIDS Human Immunodeficiency Virus/Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome , sexually transmitted diseases Sexually transmitted diseases
Infections that are acquired and transmitted by sexual contact. Although virtually any infection may be transmitted during intimate contact, the term sexually transmitted disease is restricted to conditions that are largely , 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 The HIV Vaccine Trials Network is a collaboration between physicians, scientists and activists that conducts clinical trials seeking a safe and effective HIV vaccine. They review potential vaccines for safety, immune response and efficacy. (HVTN HVTN HIV Vaccine Trials Network ), and the HIV Prevention Trials Network The HIV Prevention Trials Network is an international organization that develops and tests the safety and efficacy of primarily non-vaccine interventions designed to prevent the transmission of HIV.

This International Research in Infectious Diseases (IRID IRID Idaho Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf ) 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.

Clinical trials will not be supported. When noninterventional clinical studies are a component of the research proposed, NIAID policy requires that studies be monitored commensurate with the degree of potential risk to study subjects and the complexity of the study. AN UPDATED NIAID policy was published in the NIH Guide on 8 July 2002 and is available at: http://grants.nih.gov/ grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-AI-02-032.html.

The applicant will be solely responsible for planning, directing, and executing the proposed project.
This FOA uses "Just-in-Time" information concepts. It also uses the nonmodular budget formats (see http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/ modular/modular.htm). All foreign applicants must complete and submit nonmodular budget requests using the Research & Related Budget component found in the application package for this FOA. See NOT-OD-06-096, 23 August 2006.
At this time, it is not known if competing renewal (formerly "competing continuation") applications will be accepted and/or if this FOA will be reissued.
Applicants must download the SF424 (R&R) application forms and the SF424 (R&R) Application Guide for this FOA through Grants.gov/Apply.
Note: Only the forms package directly attached to a specific FOA can be used. You will not be able to use any other SF424 (R&R) forms (e.g., sample forms, forms from another FOA), although some of the "Attachment" files may be useable for more than one FOA.
