Programs

To tackle the human health challenges that face the world today, the FNIH develops collaborations with top experts from government, industry, academia and the not-for-profit sector and provides a neutral environment where we can work productively toward a common goal.

Clayton-Dedonder Mentorship Fellows Program

Clayton-Dedonder Mentorship Fellows Program is designed to enhance the teaching and leadership skills of entry- to mid-level faculty at universities and research institutions in low- and middle-income countries at select training sites funded by the NIH Fogarty International Center.

Roth Fellowship for CAEBV-HV Research

The Roth Fellowship for CAEBV-HV Research was established to support a fellowship in the lab of Jeffrey I. Cohen, M.D., Chief of the Laboratory of Infectious Diseases and Chief of the Medical Virology Section at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). 

Adam J. Berry Memorial Fund

The Adam J. Berry Memorial Fund assists early career Australian scientists with travel between Australia and the United States to work at the NIH.

Epidemiology of Visceral Leishmaniasis in Bihar, India

In India, the sand fly vector Phlebotomus argentipes is responsible for the transmission of the protozoan parasite Leishmania donovani, which causes a disease called visceral leishmaniasis (VL), from one human to another. 

Etiology, Risk Factors and Interactions of Enteric Infections and Malnutrition and the Consequences for Child Health and Development (MAL-ED)

The study was implemented using shared and harmonized protocols across the eight sites to gather an enormous amount of data (physical, cognitive assessments, diet, illness and enteric infection, socio-economic status, etc.) to enable identification and characterization of factors associated with negative impacts on a child’s growth, development and vaccine response early in life.

Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative 3 (ADNI 3)

The Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI), is a landmark study that has profoundly influenced our understanding of Alzheimer’s disease by identifying the earliest changes in brain structure and function that signal its onset and progression.

Lung-MAP: Master Protocol for Treatment of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

Lung-MAP is an umbrella protocol which contains a screening component and multiple independently conducted and analyzed treatment sub-studies. The overarching hypothesis is that the umbrella master protocol will establish genomic screening for a large population of previously treated Non-small cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) patients and evaluate targeted therapies (or combinations) in biomarker-driven sub-studies and immunotherapy combinations in patients previously exposed to standard checkpoint inhibitor therapy and lead to regulatory approval of efficacious regimens.

Rapid identification of individuals with viable adult female worms of Onchocerca volvulus: a means to the end

To identify host- and parasite-specific biomarker(s) present in human subjects with viable adult females of Onchocerca volvulus (Ov) and to develop and configure rapid point of care methods to detect (or sense) these biomarkers.

Identification of high-quality HITs for tuberculosis (HIT-TB)

To produce high-quality chemical hit series with defined, tractable targets as drug leads for tuberculosis.

Vector-based Control of Transmission: Discovery Research

This program supports research to develop new biologic and chemical strategies to control disease transmission by vector mosquitoes.
