Applicants should be from Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Pakistan, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, UAE, or Yemen to be eligible to apply. Applications will be accepted from November 21st to December 31st, 2014. Preference will be given for research activities that promote public or zoonotic health issues and implement laboratory biosafety and biosecurity best practices. Researchers seeking funding for new activities or to supplement existing projects are acceptable. Each award will be valued at up to USD 45,000 and will cover up to 12 months of support. If you are interested to apply read on. Program Goals & Priorities The primary goal of the competition is to foster new or expanded research. It is expected that grant applications will focus on questions of direct relevance to the EMR, promoting the surveillance, detection and control of emerging human or zoonotic infectious diseases. Proposals will be accepted related to the following research priorities: Human or Zoonotic infectious diseases research relevant to EMR focused on at least one of the following areas; · Linking public health and veterinary sectors at laboratory reference centers and/or in field diagnostics · Implementation of rapid diagnostics in disease surveillance and detection · Trans-boundary disease control · Subtyping of endemic strains of zoonotic diseases of public health concern · Vaccine matching Participants will be expected to demonstrate that they will be integrating their research with appropriate safety and security standards for biological laboratories. Eligibility Criteria · There should only be one PI per proposal. The PI must be a human or zoonotic infectious disease scientist from an institute in an eligible EMR country. · Each research team must represent an institute from the eligible EMR countries: Algeria, · Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Pakistan, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, UAE, and Yemen. · Teams may include participants from other institutes as secondary collaborators. · Each team may submit only one proposal for this competition How to Apply · Applicants are highly recommended to review our Frequently Asked Questions and Grant Writing Tips before writing their application at bit.ly/proposal-advice.
