Researchers, if you can contribute to the understanding of critical drivers of tuberculosis (TB) transmission at the individual and population levels in high-burden settings, consider applying to Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Halting Tuberculosis (TB) Transmission.

NIAID encourages applicants to develop effective methods to measure rates of TB transmission that rely on an increased understanding of the biomedical basis of transmission and related risk factors and to develop and assess potential interventions, including low-cost and low-tech options, to prevent TB transmission.

Areas of interest include the following. See the NOSI for the complete list.

  • Aerobiology
  • Environmental impacts on transmission
  • Identifying host factors or host/pathogen interactions that encourage transmission
  • Defining characteristics or sub-populations of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) strains that impact transmission, including the role of Mtb strain heterogeneity
  • Understanding the role of asymptomatic, pre-symptomatic, and differentially culturable TB in transmission

Application and Submission Information

This notice applies to application receipt dates on or after February 5, 2023, and subsequent receipt dates through January 7, 2026.

Refer to the Application and Submission Information section of this NOSI to identify the funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) through which NIAID will accept applications.
