The VALIDATE Network - Vaccine development for complex intracellular neglected pathogens
Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases Program 2020
Application closing date: 18 Nov 2020
The funders wish to encourage high quality, innovative research conducted by transdisciplinary teams of researchers on the ecological, evolutionary, and social drivers that influence the transmission dynamics of infectious diseases of animals, humans and plants.
The Collaborative proposals must include researchers from the UK and US and can include researchers from Israel and China. Applications for both research projects and Research Coordination Networks that involve researchers from the UK and US, China and/or Israel will be considered.
For further information on the scope of the call and how to apply can be found on the NSF website. (see external links).
The duration of the UK component of the project will be 3-years only and this component in itself should be interdisciplinary. It is strongly encouraged that there is a good integration of mathematical, computational and a spectrum of social scientists with life scientists interested in infectious diseases of humans, animal and plants. e.g. including biologists, ecologists, natural scientists, plant scientists, clinicians and veterinarians etc.
How to apply
Applicants should contact the main UK Programme Officer at UKRI-BBSRC to discuss the remit of their proposal and to confirm that the UK component is appropriate and falls within our remit. Contact details below.
Applications must be submitted via the NSF. Application preparation and submission instruction can be found on the NSF website.
