New Funding Opportunities


Have Your Say as We Blog Away

Though we will approve all comments,  moderation will be speedy, so your comments will appear with little delay.

Meet us in the blogosphere. Today we start posting many of our newsletter articles on the NIAID Funding Blog.

Our first post, "Is Your Research 'Human Subjects'? The Answer May Surprise You," is up now. Expect more blog posts regularly between issues of the NIAID Funding Newsletter.

The blog lets you make your own foray into topics you care most about by letting you post comments, ask questions, and interact with your fellow investigators. Though we will approve all comments, moderation will be speedy, so your comments will appear with little delay. See the Comment Policy for details.

If you simply want to read the newsletter every two weeks online, you can do that instead. Each issue will index all recent blog posts plus additional news items that don't fit a blog approach.

Today's issue is shorter than usual because we don't have a backlog of blog posts as we will in future issues.

Reader Questions

Feel free to send us a question at After responding to you, we may include your question in the newsletter, incorporate it into the NIAID Research Funding site, or both.

"How do we handle eRA Commons registration for a PI already affiliated with an academic institution? We plan a Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) application under PA-10-124."—Dr. Jim Rotolo, ContraFect Corp.

Since the PI is already registered with the eRA Commons through the university, you would need to set up an affiliation with your business rather than complete a new registration. See the instructions in Section IV of your program announcement for how to add the affiliation in the Commons.

"I reviewed some NIAID applications for CSR—should I be listed on your thank you list?"—an anonymous reader

While we truly appreciate your efforts, our Thank You Members of NIAID Peer Review Groups and Advisory Committees list covers only NIAID peer review groups.

Unfortunately, as we explain in our introduction to that page, we can't individually list the many generous reviewers who served on the Center for Scientific Review's Review Committees.

We wrote about the update to our list in last issue's article, "Big Thanks to Our NIAID Committee Volunteers."
