Investigators in the Pathogenesis of Infectious Disease
Awards for assistant professors to study infectious disease pathogenesis, with a focus on the intersection of human and pathogen biology. The program is intended to shed light on the overarching issues of how human hosts handle infectious challenge.
Application Deadline: November 1, 2011
Five-year awards provide $500,000 for opportunities for accomplished investigators at the assistant professor level to study pathogenesis with a focus on the intersection of human and microbial biology. The program is intended to shed light on the overarching issues of how human hosts handle infectious challenge. The awards give recipients the freedom and flexibility to pursue new avenues of inquiry and higher-risk research projects that hold potential for advancing significantly the biochemical, pharmacological, immunological, and molecular biological understanding of how infectious agents and the human body interact.
