NIAID encourages applications under topics related to asthma and allergies, autoimmune disease, immune system, radiation exposure, and transplantation. Below are areas of interests from the Division of Allergy, Immunology, and Transplantation (DAIT). The subject matter expert is available to answer questions and advise on the application process.
If you do not see your allergy-, immunology-, and transplantation-related topic here, the application may not be prioritized but will still be reviewed. Contact Lawrence Prograis (NED) or Natalia Kruchinin (NED) if you have any questions about your application and don’t see an appropriate subject matter expert below.
