Rebecca Dotson

IDSA is now taking applications for the 2009 Infectious Diseases Society of America Education and Research Foundation (IDSA ERF)/National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) Joint Research Awards.  Applicants and their sponsors must be members of IDSA unless otherwise noted.

IDSA members-in-training are encouraged to apply for the following: 

  • Merle A. Sande/Pfizer Fellowship Award in International Infectious Diseases 
    sponsored by Pfizer Inc.
    • This award is intended to encourage young physicians interested in international medicine.  Note:  The applicant's sponsor must be from the resource-limited country and does not necessarily have to be an IDSA member.

Junior faculty members (those who are not more than four years out of a training program) are encouraged to apply for the following:

  • Association of Specialty Professors – IDSA Young Investigator Award in Geriatrics
    sponsored by the Atlantic Philanthropies, Inc. and the John A. Hartford Foundation
    • This award provides support to infectious diseases faculty within the first four years of appointment who are interested in academic careers focused on the geriatric medicine aspects of the subspecialty.
  • Astellas Young Investigator Awards 
    sponsored by the Astellas  USA Foundation
    • These awards provide funding to young investigators who have demonstrated outstanding research in any area of current interest in the field of infectious diseases.
  • Wyeth Young Investigator Award in Vaccines Development 
    sponsored by Wyeth Vaccines Research
    • This annual award provides funding for outstanding research in vaccine development, either through clinical or laboratory investigation.

The application deadline is February 13, 2009.

These awards grow more competitive every year as the number of applicants increases. Apply now!

For more information or to download an application, visit the IDSA website, or call IDSA at (703) 299-0200.

Correction: The Joint Research Awards brochure that was mailed to IDSA members incorrectly listed the sponsor for the Merle A. Sande/Pfizer Fellowship Award in International Infectious Diseases. The award is sponsored by Pfizer Inc. IDSA regrets the error.
