The International Society for Infectious Diseases (ISID) have announced that applications for ISID’s Research Grants and ISID/ESCMID Fellowship are now open.

ISID’s research grants are one of the Society’s signature programs and are instrumental in fulfilling ISID’s commitment to funding researchers from countries which bear the greatest burden of infectious disease. To date over 175 grants have been awarded to infectious diseases researchers from 46 countries.

The ISID and the European Society for Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID) established their joint fellowship program in 2010 to foster international, peer-to-peer collaboration and the exchange of scientific knowledge and best practice. The program enables young investigators, from low and low-middle income countries outside of the region, to travel to Europe for multidisciplinary clinical and laboratory training.

Applications for both programs are open until June 21, 2020.
