USA: NIAID calls for proposals for in vitro models of enteric diseases
The National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) is funding a program intended to advance understanding of enteric diseases by developing in vitro models that mimic biological structures, recapitulate human physiology and disease pathology, and incorporate components critical to disease and human host response. These models should facilitate studies that span the pipeline from basic research (pathogenesis) to product development. Grants will be awarded to multidisciplinary research teams with expertise spanning the fields of infectious disease and bioengineering. Eligible entities include U.S. for-profit and nonprofit organizations and government entities, including eligible agencies of the Federal government.
Application deadline: May 29, 2014
