Enhancement or Sustainment of Data Science Tools for Infectious and...

By National Institutes of Health
Government Grant





The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to solicit applications for the enhancement and/or sustainment of high-value data science research software to improve the acquisition, management, analysis, visualization, and dissemination of data and knowledge across the immune-mediated, and infectious-disease research continuum, aligned with the research mission of NIAID. This includes infectious diseases, emerging infections, or immune-mediated diseases that include allergy, autoimmunity, or immune reactions associated with transplantation. As a part of the trans-NIAID data science program, this FOA focuses on enhancement and/or sustaining operations and improving the user experience and availability of existing, widely adopted informatics tools and resources. This contrasts with exploratory (R21) and early-stage (U01) development efforts to generate these tools and resources that are supported by the companion FOA s.
