Evolution of Infectious Diseases: - This initiative encourages research on the evolutionary principles that underlie the emergence, spread, and containment of infectious disease. An explicit goal is to stimulate interdisciplinary research between (a) quantitative and computational sciences and (b) experimental, clinical, or field studies. Areas of particular interest include the evolution of pathogens, evolutionary dynamics of host-pathogen systems, and the consequences of intervention strategies. The focus of this program is limited to discovery of fundamental biological principles rather than to detailed knowledge or treatment of specific diseases. - The size and duration of awards may vary according to the grant mechanism and the scope of the proposed research. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the mechanism numbers, quality, duration, and costs of the applications received. - The type of mechanism is the Research Project (R01) grant. Investigators from eligible institutions are encouraged to apply for Academic Research Enhancement Awards (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-03-053.html) with the research objectives of this program. - Eligible organizations include non-profit or for profit organizations; public or private institutions, such as universities, colleges, hospitals, and laboratories; eligible agencies of Federal, State, and local governments; and domestic or foreign institutions - Eligible principal investigators include any individual with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply for NIH programs. - There is no limit on the number of applications that may be submitted.
