The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) this week announced four new grants to establish tuberculosis research centers in the U.S.
The NIAID, which is part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), issued four new grant awards to establish Tuberculosis Research Advancement Centers (TRAC) to support the development of the next generation of researchers. The centers will provide focused mentoring and funding support for new investigators, opportunities for multidisciplinary and collaborative research and training in laboratory and clinical settings.
Total funding in the first year of the five-year grants is approximately $4.3 million, according to the NIH.
Awards were made to four research institutions, including: Texas Biomedical Research Institute in San Antonio, Texas; Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore; Emory University in Atlanta and the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle.
