Sub-Saharan African research collaborations encouraged

January - February, 2009  |  Volume 8, Issue 1

As a result of the recent Fogarty-sponsored summit on sub-Saharan Africa, the Center plans to further expand its support of research and training involving African institutions and scientists.

This notice was published recently in NIH Guide for Grants and examples of potentially applicable programs include: the Fogarty International Research Collaboration Award - Basic Biomedical and the Fogarty International Research Collaboration Award - Behavioral and Social Sciences.

These provide opportunities for researchers to extend their NIH-supported projects to include colleagues and relevant work in low- and middle-income countries. African scientists have an opportunity to contribute as co-collaborators on FIRCA applications and awards.

For more details, read the NIH Notice Encouraging Research Collaborations in sub-Saharan Africa through Fogarty International Center (FIC) Research and Research Training Programs.
