Pilot Research Program:
Request for Application (RFA) #1: [Round 1]
Objectives and Research Priorities
The CREID Network Pilot Research Program supports, trains, and mentors the next generation of emerging infectious disease researchers. This program will help develop capacity for emerging infectious disease research around the world through the performance of scientific research projects.
Scientific research project topics could include but are not limited to studies on pathogen transmission, emergence, or maintenance in an ecosystem, pathogenesis, characterization of viral antigens, phylogenetics, viral diversity, sociological or behavioral influences on emerging or re-emerging viral diseases, development of reagents and diagnostic assays to improve detection of emerging pathogens, as well as studies aimed at detailing human immune responses to new or emerging infectious agents. Preliminary data is not required.

- Retrospective epidemiological study using already captured clinical data (secondary human subjects’ research) or other experimental data.
- Behavioral/social science studies on unique aspects of a particular clinical cohort, but not a clinical trial, and that is nested within a parent study.
- Surveillance of animals/vectors in the field
- Lab-based study answering a finite and well-defined hypothesis
The RFA will be released on the CREID Network Pilot Research Program page.
