ISID Grant: The Small Grants
Program is framed to fund small pilot research projects by young
investigators in least developed countries. The goal is to support
and foster the professional development of young individuals in the field
of infectious diseases research by helping them to acquire additional
skills and data to apply for other grants. Areas of interest include,
but are not limited to investigations of the epidemiology,
pathophysiology, diagnosis or treatment of infectious diseases, the
epidemiology and control of hospital-acquired infections, and modeling of
cost effective interventions.The society can give up to five grants of up
