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.

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.

Biomarkers Consortium - Treatments Against RA and Effect on FDG PET-CT (TARGET Biomarker Study)

The Biomarkers Consortium’s TARGET Biomarker Study seeks to utilize validated proteomic biomarkers of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) disease activity and inflammation to categorize baseline and disease-modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD)-associated changes in vascular inflammation in RA patients.

Biomarkers Consortium - Hospital-Acquired Bacterial Pneumonia/Ventilator-Associated Bacterial Pneumonia Clinical Endpoint Development (HABP/VABP)

The Biomarkers Consortium’s Hospital-Acquired Bacterial Pneumonia (HABP) and Ventilator-Associated Bacterial Pneumonia (VABP) Project aims to develop clinically relevant endpoints in clinical trials to improve antibacterial trial feasibility.

Biomarkers Consortium - Developing Endpoints for Clinical Trials in Community Acquired Bacterial Pneumonia (CABP) and Acute Skin and Skin Infections (ABSSSI)

The Biomarkers Consortium’s Developing Endpoints for Clinical Trials in CABP and Skin Infections aims to develop approaches that will help the U.S. Food and Drug Administration develop efficacy outcome measures (endpoints) for modern-day clinical trials of investigational agents for community-acquired bacterial pneumonia (CABP) and acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSI).
