ISID Research & Capacity Building Cohort Awardees

Congratulations to our first ISID Research & Capacity Building Cohort of 2023!

The International Society for Infectious Disease (ISID)'s longstanding Research Grant Program is one of the signature Programs of the Society and is instrumental in fulfilling ISID’s commitment to supporting researchers from countries that bear the greatest health and economic burden from infectious diseases. An essential element for reducing morbidity and mortality associated with these diseases in low- and lower-middle income countries (LMICs) is the provision of training, educational support, and mentoring to scientists, allied healthcare workers, epidemiologists, physicians, veterinarians, and others in the One Health space confronting challenges in the countries most affected.

This pool of applicants reflected an impressive quality of proposals and geographical diversity. We appreciate everyone's interest and welcome those to apply for this upcoming Fall Cohort. Congratulations once again to the awardees!
