International Centers of Excellence for Malaria Research (U19)

| Global Health Funding



  • United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)
  • National Institutes of Health (NIH)
  • National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)


NIAID intends to commit $13.5 million in FY 2017 to fund 8-10 ICEMR awards. Future year amounts will depend on annual appropriations.

The budget for each ICEMR cannot exceed $1 million in direct costs per year excluding consortia F&A costs. It is required that at least 50% of the annual direct costs should be committed for field work and related research activities at the endemic sites. Awards are contingent upon the availability of funds and submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications.

An applicant may request a project period of up to 7 years. 


This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits applications to participate in an International Centers of Excellence for Malaria Research (ICEMR) program that will provide a multidisciplinary research approach to malaria control and prevention through the integration of findings from clinical and field research. The overarching goal of the ICEMR program is to establish research centers in malaria-endemic settings that will provide the necessary knowledge, tools, and evidence-based strategies for use by government organizations and health care institutions to control and treat malaria. This program is not intended to support research which can be conducted primarily in U.S. institutions.
