Description:

The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) reannounces the Request for Applications for Research Groups for the Models of Infectious Disease Agent Study (MIDAS). MIDAS consists of a centralized informatics resource and a network of multidisciplinary scientists conducting computational and mathematical research to improve the ability to detect, control, and prevent emerging infectious diseases caused by naturally occurring or intentionally released pathogens, including those relevant to biodefense. In May 2004, NIGMS funded three research groups and one informatics group to initiate the MIDAS Network. This reannouncement seeks to expand the scope and expertise of the Network by adding up to three new pilot projects (but not a new informatics group) for a commitment of approximately $2 million in FY 06. The U01 Cooperative Agreement mechanism will be used and each award is expected to be approximately $600,000 total costs. Eligible instit!
utions include domestic institutions, for-profit or non-profit organizations, public or private institutions, such as universities, colleges, hospitals, and laboratories, units of State and local governments, and eligible agencies of the Federal government. Foreign institutions may participate only as collaborating institutions. An applicant institution may submit more than one application. Individuals with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research are invited to work with their institution to develop applications for support. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply for NIH programs. Applications must be prepared using the PHS 398 research grant application instructions and forms (rev. 5/2001).
