The Burroughs Wellcome Fund's (BWF's) Investigators in Pathogenesis of Infectious Disease program provides opportunities for assistant professors to bring multidisciplinary approaches to the study of human infectious diseases. These accomplished investigators still early in their careers study the pathogenesis of infectious disease at its most fundamental level - the points where human and microbial systems connect. The program supports research that sheds light on overarching problems in this encounter: how colonization, infection, commensalism, and other relationships play out at levels ranging from molecular interactions to systemic ones. BWF is particularly interested in work focused on the host, as well as host-pathogen studies originating in viral, bacterial, fungal, or parasite systems. Studies supported by the program may have their roots in the pathogen, but the focus of the work should be on the interplay of host and microbe.

Candidates will generally have an MD, DVM, or PhD degree. BWF particularly encourages human health-relevant applications from veterinary scientists.

Because MU is limited to two applications (or three if a DVM is nominated) for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research, ltdsub@missouri.edu, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, September 15, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to a 1-page summary of the proposed research and a 2-page biographical sketch of the applicant.

Amount:

$400,000 over a period of five years ($80,000 per year).

MU Deadline: 4:00 p.m., Friday, September 15, 2006
