UKRI Call For Proposals: Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases

UKRI in collaboration with:

  • National Science Foundation (NSF)
  • National Institutes of Health (NIH)
  • U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)
  • United States- Israel Binational Science Foundation
  • National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC)

announce a call for international partnership involving researchers from the UK, and US, China and/or Israel under the Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases programme (EEID).

The funders wish to award around 10 projects of high quality, innovative research conducted by transdisciplinary teams of researchers on the ecological, evolutionary, and social drivers that influence the transmission dynamics of infectious diseases of animals, humans and plants beyond the scope of typical studies. Proposals for research on disease systems of public health concern to developing countries are strongly encouraged.

The duration of the UK component of the project will be 3-years only and this component in itself should be interdisciplinary.  It is strongly encouraged that there is a good integration of mathematical, computational and a spectrum of social scientists with life scientists interested in infectious diseases of humans, animal and plants.  e.g. including biologists, ecologists, natural scientists, plant scientists, clinicians and veterinarians etc.

Closing date is November 20, 2019.
