NIAID Funding Opportunity: Brazil Regional Prospective Observational Research in Tuberculosis

Brazil Regional Prospective Observational Research in Tuberculosis (RePORT) (U01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Application open date: November 08, 2021

Expiration Date: December 09, 2021

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support a Brazil-US Regional Prospective Observational Research in Tuberculosis (RePORT) network to advance TB and TB/HIV science. The RePORT Brazil network will leverage and build upon Brazilian cohorts currently following adult and pediatric populations with active TB disease and their contacts or other high TB-risk individuals to address key research questions of regional and global interest. Specific areas supported under this program include, but are not limited to, research and development projects in TB/HIV in the areas of molecular epidemiology, diagnostics, biomarkers, vaccine development, and the impact of co-morbidities such as HIV and diabetes. Research outcomes should be capable of advancing tools with public health impact or of influencing decision making in TB public health to inform stakeholders on the best practices for early prevention, diagnosis, and clinical management of TB and TB/HIV.

Advancing Vaccine Adjuvant Research for Tuberculosis (TB)

Solicitation for BAA-DAIT-75N93021R00008 entitled, "Advancing Vaccine Adjuvant Research for Tuberculosis (TB)"

Contract Opportunity Type: Solicitation
 

The goal of this program is to further the development of TB vaccines through sideby-side comparisons of adjuvants in combination with TB immunogens, and to establish immunological profiles of adjuvants that work through different mechanisms, facilitating the identification of the most promising adjuvant:Mtb immunogen candidates for clinical development and potential immune correlates of protection. The range of adjuvants to be evaluated may include novel classes of adjuvants being developed for other infections and immune-oncology therapeutics, as well as adjuvants already being developed for TB vaccines. It is anticipated that one cost reimbursement, completion type contract will be awarded for a five [5]-year period of performance beginning on or about 7/22/22.
NIAID anticipates that the average annual total cost (direct and indirect costs combined) is $4 million per contract. However, it is anticipated that the total cost for the award(s) may vary depending upon the scope of the project and the technical objectives of the award(s). The length of time for which funding is requested should be consistent with the nature and complexity of the proposed research. In no event shall the period of performance proposed by an offeror exceed five [5] years. Any responsible offeror may submit a proposal which shall be considered by the Agency. This BAA will be available electronically on/about April, 28, 2021, and may be accessed through here. This notice does not commit the Government to award a contract. No collect calls will be accepted. No facsimile transmissions will be accepted.

Postdoctoral Fellowship opportunity in Global HIV & TB Research

Post-Doctoral Research Fellowships for Global HIV and TB Public Health Programs

The mission of this fellowship program is to recruit, mentor, and train scientist-practitioners to conduct global HIV and TB research and to develop the translational and applied skills necessary to implement and support high-quality HIV and TB public health programs in global settings. The goal of this fellowship is to attract and support recent recipients of doctoral degrees to understand the underpinnings of interventional epidemiology and to prepare them for a career operating at the intersection of science and practice in global public health. The selected candidates will be in the Division of Global HIV & TB (DGHT) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), headquartered in Atlanta, GA. The DGHT Office of the Director (DGHT OD) is the lead for the program. Fellows will also be paired with DGHT’s programmatic or data branches on various projects throughout their fellowship.

The deadline to apply to this fellowship is June 30, 2021. The fellowship is scheduled to begin Fall 2021, subject to availability of funds.

Using Syndemics to Understand HLBS Disease Emergence and Progression in People with HIV (PWH)(R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed), expires 12/15/2021

Application Due Date(s): January 11, 2021, and December 14, 2021

This funding opportunity announcement is intended to support research project grant (R01) applications that propose to utilize a syndemics (synergistic epidemic) framework to elucidate the role of social, economic, environmental, behavioral, structural, psychological factors in promoting the synergistic interactions and clustering of heart, lung, blood, and sleep (HLBS) comorbidities among people with HIV at the population level. The ultimate goal is to identify strategies that foster holistic approaches in the clinical management of people living with HIV who have HLBS comorbidities, and to utilize existing data to assess the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of such approaches.
