Contact the Program Officer listed under Contact Info to discuss your preliminary data and the suitability of your proposed studies for support vis a vis the following standard criteria:
Investigators with adequate preliminary who propose promising studies will be invited to submit concepts to the Program Officer. The request must include:
Requests are also initiated by DMID staff members based on identification of gaps in the research portfolio.
The Program Officer reviews and approves concepts that propose to fill a gap in malaria vaccine development. Investigators who put forward approved concepts then work with SAIC to produce an overall product development or project plan for submission by SAIC to the Program Officer.
The Program Officer evaluates product development or project plans submitted by SAIC, arranging for review by subject matter experts for complex product develop plans. The Program Officer then prioritizes and approves product development plans based on recommendations of subject matter experts; strategic advice provided to the contractor by malaria vaccine consultants who periodically evaluate contractor-performed projects in the context of the NIAID malaria research agenda; and input from DMID program staff and/or senior DMID management.
All are guided by the criteria listed above as well as scientific and technical merit and competing priorities/availability of contract resources.
