Opportunities and Resources

NIAID seeks to fund research that will identify changes in immune mechanisms and markers due to Mycobacterium tuberculosis exposure, infection, or disease in pediatric populations exposed to or infected with HIV-1.

We're looking for small businesses with promising radiological/nuclear medical countermeasures or biodosimetry devices that seek to further advance their products towards FDA licensure.

Apply if your research can explain how the immune system of a mother affects that of a fetus during gestation and beyond, and how cellular and humoral communication between the two affects fetal immune system development.

In The News

To continue supporting its grantee community in areas affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, NIH announced actions to relieve short-term administrative, financial management, and audit requirements.

Beginning January 25, 2019, you will need to include participants of all age ranges, including older adults, in human subjects research unless you have scientific or ethical reasons to exclude them.

NIH has lifted the pause on gain-of-function research anticipated to result in influenza, Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), or severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) viruses with enhanced pathogenicity or transmissibility in mammals via the respiratory route.
