Grants to USA and Canada individual researchers to study the development of infectious diseases, with a focus on the interplay between human and microbial biology. The goal of the program is to provide opportunities for investigators, who are accomplished yet still early in their careers, to study what happens at the points where the systems of humans and potentially infectious agents connect.
The program supports research that sheds light on the fundamentals that affect the outcomes of these encounters: how colonization, infection, commensalism and other relationships play out at levels ranging from molecular interactions to systemic ones.
The awards are intended to give recipients the freedom and flexibility to pursue new avenues of inquiry, stimulating higher-risk research projects that hold potential for significantly advancing understanding of how infectious diseases work and how health is maintained.
BWF encourages submissions from those working in protozoan and metazoan parasites, protists, and fungi. Viral, bacterial, immune, and multi-species work is likewise encouraged. Work related to malaria, tuberculosis, and AIDs is appropriate for this program. BWF particularly encourages human health-relevant applications from veterinary scientists. BWF encourages submissions focusing on climate change and its impact on the pathogenosis of infectious disease and human health. Microbiome-related proposals must be infectious disease focused to compete well in this program.
