A thread for collating international and national funding opportunities that might support secondary and co-infection research.
UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) has an open call for COVID-19 research. There’s no particular deadline, duration of projects is 18 months and the call is open currently.
UK National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) has a central portal for applications that need access to patient data, patient samples, NHS facilities or staff. Not a funding call as such, but projects requiring any of these things must go through this central prioritisation process for Chief Medical Officer approval.
Is that call only for UK groups?
There is a new call here in Spain, not much money, but a chance for international collaborations. At least for a proof of concept.
We are thinking on DNA/RNA metagenomics for co-infections and host transcriptomics markers.
Comments and possible partnership are welcome!
