Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases  (EEID)

FY 2014 Revision Notes

Additional information and NIH contacts (Christine Jessup and Irene Eckstrand) can be found at: http://www.fic.nih.gov/Programs/Pages/ecology-infectious-diseases.aspx.

Additional information and USDA contact (Peter Johnson) can be found at: http://nifa.usda.gov/fo/ecologyandevolutionofinfectiousdiseases.cfm

This revision adds the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases as a funding entity.

This revision substantially alters the scope of projects eligible as US-UK Collaborative Projects. These projects must be ResearchCoordination Networks. Projects concerning vector-borne disease (including vector biology) and/or antimicrobial resistance areparticularly encouraged. See details in the program announcement in the section titled "US-UK Collaborative Projects."

This revision adds a request for collaborative projects between U.S. scientists and scientists in Israel through a joint effort of theU.S. National Science Foundation, the U.S. National Institutes of Health, and the U.S.D.A. National Institute of Food and Agricultureand the U.S.-Israel Binational Science Foundation. Multinational collaborative projects between U.S., U.K. and Israel scientists arealso welcome. See details in the program announcement in the sections titled "US-Israel Collaborative Projects" and "US-UK-IsraelCollaborative Projects."

Note Guidance on Data Management Plans

Important Information for Proposers

A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 15-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after December 26, 2014. The PAPPG is consistent with, and, implements the new Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Guidance) (2 CFR 200). Please be advised that the guidelines contained in NSF 15-1 apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.

Third Wednesday in November, Annually Thereafter


The Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases program supports research on the ecological, evolutionary, and socio-ecological principles and processes that influence the transmission dynamics of infectious diseases. The central theme of submitted projects must be quantitative or computational understanding of pathogen transmission dynamics. The intent is discovery of principles of infectious disease transmission and testing mathematical or computational models that elucidate infectious disease systems. Projects should be broad, interdisciplinary efforts that go beyond the scope of typical studies. They should focus on the determinants and interactions of transmission among humans, non-human animals, and/or plants. This includes, for example, the spread of pathogens; the influence of environmental factors such as climate; the population dynamics and genetics of reservoir species or hosts; the cultural, social, behavioral, and economic dimensions of disease transmission. Research may be on zoonotic, environmentally-borne, vector-borne, or enteric diseases of either terrestrial or freshwater systems and organisms, including diseases of animals and plants, at any scale from specific pathogens to inclusive environmental systems. Proposals for research on disease systems of public health concern to developing countries are strongly encouraged, as are disease systems of concern in agricultural systems. Investigators are encouraged to develop the appropriate multidisciplinary team, including for example, modelers, bioinformaticians, genomics researchers, social scientists, economists, epidemiologists, entomologists, parasitologists, microbiologists, bacteriologists, virologists, pathologists or veterinarians, with the goal of integrating knowledge across disciplines to enhance our ability to predict and control infectious diseases.
