NIAID is recompeting its Structural Genomics Centers for Infectious Diseases program, now referred to as the Centers for Research on Structural Biology of Infectious Diseases (CRSTAL-ID).

Review the request for proposals at Centers for Research on Structural Biology of Infectious Diseases.

Successful offerors will support the CRSTAL-ID program by:

  • Generating 3D structures for targets derived from bacterial, viral, eukaryotic and other human pathogens using state-of-the-art high-throughput technologies and structural biology methodologies, including x-ray crystallography, nuclear magnetic resonance, cryo-EM, and structural modeling
  • Characterizing molecular functions and biochemical properties of selected targets
  • Evaluating structure-guided design and functional studies of drug targets and vaccine candidates
  • Providing pandemic preparedness and rapid response to emerging infectious diseases threats and programmatic priorities
  • Providing a 3D structure determination service to the external scientific community
  • Disseminating contract-generated resources, including all 3D structure information and reagents

We anticipate making two cost-reimbursement type level-of-effort contracts with a one-year base period of performance plus four one-year option periods.

For inquiries, contact Swee Teo, NIAID’s contracting officer for the solicitation.
