Diagnostics for Hospital-Based Antibacterial-Resistant Infections

NIAID recently announced a research funding opportunity to develop and/or produce diagnostics to quickly detect the key bacteria responsible for antibacterial-resistant infections in hospital settings. The request for applications (RFA) will support diagnostics research related to one or more of the following types of bacteria: Klebsiella pneumonia, Acinetobacter baumannii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Enterobacter species, and extra-intestinal pathogenic Eschericihia coli. NIAID expects to fund 10-15 awards for a total of up to $12 million in 2015, and the maximum length of each award is 5 years.

NIAID will accept applications through June 19, 2014. View the complete RFA (RFA-AI-14-019).
