Program Overview

The Global Infectious Disease (GID) research training program addresses research training needs related to infectious diseases that are predominantly endemic in or impact upon people living in developing countries. The training programs include a variety of research training options to match the needs of the developing country institution. Program focus on a major endemic or life-threatening emerging infectious disease, neglected tropical disease, infections that frequently occur as a co-infection in HIV infected individuals, or infections associated with noncommunicable disease conditions of public health importance in LMICs. The ultimate goal is to build a critical mass of researchers and support staff to conduct independent infectious disease research in developing country institutions.

Training programs may include:

  • Long-term (master's or doctoral degree and other training that is six months or longer) training for the full range of skills necessary to support research and research administration with the understanding that the focus of thesis and training-related research will be in their country.
  • Medium-term (three- to up to six-months) training or mentoring, including specialized clinical, laboratory, research or administrative/business skills necessary to support research that is planned or ongoing.
  • Short-term (less than three months) training or mentoring that focuses on research methodology, laboratory skills necessary to support research ethics and compliance issues, program and grants administration and financial management, grant writing, preparation of scientific manuscripts, data management, informatics, and other relevant areas.
  • Institutional capacity-building efforts such as in-country training workshops in advanced research techniques, distance learning and informatics.
  • Advanced in-country mentored research undertaken by the trainee in their home country upon completion of his/her initial period of long-term training under the program.

Starting with 2019 application deadlines, D71 planning grants are eligible for up to two years of support, with increased funds for training resources, including faculty strengthening activities; development of advanced course and training resources; and training program evaluation.
