A new Clinical Research Fellowship Exchange Program for early- and mid-career scientists aims to expand the cohort of physician-scientists that will advance clinical practice and public health in the United States and India. Jointly established by NIAID, the Indian Council for Medical Research, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the fellowship program’s focus is to engage scientists in infectious diseases and immunology research.

In the first phase of this program, M.D. and M.D./Ph.D. extramural scientists from both the United States and India will participate in fellowship exchanges lasting up to three months at NIH intramural laboratories and Indian clinical research institutions. Outstanding applicants will demonstrate interest in pursuing ongoing Indo-U.S. research cooperation after completing the fellowship.

Applications from prospective Indian Participants and U.S. Participants are due June 1, 2022. To be clear, this isn’t an NIH funding opportunity announcement; while you may consider the general application advice on NIAID's website, the program has its own policies and procedures. For more information about the program, contact Li Zhang in NIAID’s Office of Global Research or 301-761-5403.
