Request for Infectious Disease SuperCluster proposals

February 11, 2009

The CSU Infectious Disease Supercluster (IDSC) has released two requests for proposals to fund projects to develop and enhance Infectious Disease (ID) research, capacity and activities at CSU. Information on the IDSC, its mission and goals are available on the IDSC Website.

Infectious diseases research proposals

BiohoodInfectious diseases research proposals are requested for foundational or developmental research projects focused toward novel vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostics and other potential products to combat infectious diseases of humans, animals, and plants.

Special consideration will be given this year to translational research proposals which demonstrate innovation, integration between disciplines or departments / colleges and show promise toward a new product or service.

Capacity building and activities proposals

ID Capacity Building and Activities proposals are for one time requests with relatively modest budgets. The successful proposal will typically be multidisciplinary, will address specific needs and opportunities of the respective clusters (eg: meetings, retreats, speakers, small equipment, etc), will build ID SC capacity, and will promote program enhancement and coherence.

Submission of proposals in response to the RFAs is open to CSU faculty and employees and their collaborators. Proposals must be submitted by March 20, 2009, 5:00 p.m. Anticipated start date for successful proposals is July 1, 2008.
