Infectious Disease Capacity Building and Activities Proposals

Release Date: CLOSED

PURPOSE OF THE RFA
This RFA for ID SC Capacity Building and Infectious Disease Activities is for proposals to develop and enhance infectious disease capacity at CSU, to build and strengthen ID Clusters, and to promote ID program coherence, growth, and recognition.
These proposals will typically be one time requests, and will be less than $20,000. 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. Discussing your proposal with pertinent ID Cluster Leader(s) prior to writing is strongly encouraged. The Clusters and leader information is provided at the bottom of the full RFA.

WHO CAN APPLY
Submission of proposals in response to the RFA is restricted to CSU faculty members and collaborators. A CSU faculty member must be the principal investigator.

SUBMITTING A PROPOSAL
The proposals must be submitted by March 26, 2010 at 5:00 p.m. and must follow the instructions provided below. To facilitate submission, use the proposal template provided and the completed proposal must be submitted electronically to: idsc_proposals@mail.colostate.edu.

Infectious Disease Research Proposal

Release Date: CLOSED

PURPOSE OF THE RFA
This RFA is for ID SuperCluster Research proposals to promote research discovery, to increase ID SC capacity at CSU, and to foster collaborations among CSU investigators. The overall goals are to develop knowledge and products to address the global challenge of IDs
ID SC research proposals are requested to develop novel vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostics and other potential products to combat infectious diseases of humans, animals, and plants. There are numerous candidate products on campus that would be greatly strengthened for moving into patent applications, licensing, etc., by a few additional experiments, etc. Proposals for those experiments are strongly encouraged. Special consideration will be given this year to translational research proposals that demonstrate innovation, integration between disciplines or departments / colleges and show promise toward a new product or service. Innovative, multidisciplinary proposals, which bridge departments and colleges, are also encouraged (eg, basic and clinical research laboratories, between microbiology or infectious disease laboratories and investigators in other basic disciplines (i.e. engineering, chemistry, agriculture, etc) that will bridge disciplines to develop new ID products. Discussing your proposal with pertinent ID Cluster Leader(s) prior to writing is strongly encouraged. The contact information for each Cluster Leader is provided in the full RFA.

WHO CAN APPLY
Submission of proposals in response to the RFA is restricted to CSU faculty members and collaborators. A CSU faculty member must be the principal investigator.

SUBMITTING A PROPOSAL
Each year, a call for proposals is issued, for ID SC research proposals for the ensuing year. This year, research proposals will be due March 26, 2010 at 5:00 p.m. and must follow the instructions provided below. There is a strict limit of 5 pages on the research plan, which includes the specific aims, background/significance and rationale, preliminary studies and research design. If there are human investigations or animal experiments proposed, regulatory approvals may be submitted just in time. To facilitate submission, use the proposal template provided and the completed proposal must be submitted electronically to: idsc_proposals@mail.colostate.edu.
