The Tropical Medicine Research Centers (TMRCs) are intended to advance NIAID’s global research effort by targeting research endeavors to: develop novel diagnostic, prevention and therapeutic strategies adapted for the unique needs of low and middle-income countries (LMICs), as classified by the World Bank; create and sustain in-country research capacity; stimulate scientific collaboration and global partnerships; provide opportunities for junior and early-stage investigators to conduct research on NTDs; and facilitate sample sharing to support translational research to develop or evaluate new drugs, diagnostics, vaccines, therapeutics, and/or vector control strategies.

Amount: NIAID intends to commit $3,800,000 in FY 2022 to fund four to six awards.
