Notice of Intent to Publish a Funding Opportunity Announcement for Center of Excellence for Systems Modeling of Infection and Immunity across Biological Scales (U54 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

NOTE: This is a Forecasted Opportunity.

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), intends to publish a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) to solicit applications for a Center of Excellence (CoE) for Systems Modeling of Infection and Immunity across Biological Scales that will: Develop and conduct innovative computational multi-scale modeling research for NIAID priority biomedical questions, including HIV/AIDS; Coordinate the NIAID and broader modeling community that conducts research on infectious- and immune-mediated diseases, through model and data sharing, opportunity funds, educational activities, and community-organizing activities; Conduct innovative research and coordination activities to improve data and model sharing in the NIAID and broader modeling community; Foster a diverse community of new and existing investigators dedicated to Infectious and Immune-mediated Disease (IID) multi-scale modeling and collaboration between experimental and computational scientists; Serve as point of contact to NIAID for the modeling community and pivot research activities to address acutely emerging NIAID needs, such as outbreaks, epidemics, or pandemics; Establish community development and educational opportunities in IID multi-scale modeling for students, post-doctoral fellows, and new/early-stage investigators; Enable new approaches for multi-scale model sharing and reproducibility aligned with the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) principles and the NIAID Data Ecosystem Portal.
