Grants to USA and Canada researchers affiliated with a nonprofit IHE to study the development of communicable diseases. Applicants must submit a pre-proposal prior to submitting a full proposal. Funding is intended for researchers at the assistant professor level to explore the interaction between humans and microorganisms. The goal of the program is to provide opportunities for investigators, who are accomplished yet still at an early stage in their careers, to study how humans and potentially infectious agents are affected by their encounters.
The Investigators in the Pathogenesis of Infectious Disease program provides opportunities for assistant professors to bring multidisciplinary approaches to the study of human infectious diseases. The goal of the program is to provide opportunities for accomplished investigators 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.
PATH provides funding to support investigators at the assistant professor level to study pathogenesis, with a focus on the interplay between infectious agents and their hosts, shedding light on how both are affected by their encounters. 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.
The support allocated for research is under the control of the awardee and may be used flexibly for items such as equipment, consumable supplies, travel to scientific meetings, and salaries for laboratory personnel working with the awardee.
