In late February the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) co-issued a NOSI (Notice of Special Interest - NOT-AI-20-030) informing investigators of the urgent need for research on the 2019 novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV).  The NOSI was issued so investigators can write competitive revisions to existing NIH grants and cooperative agreements where the original intent naturally extends to research in 2019-nCoV.


NIAID is particularly interested in projects focusing on viral natural history, pathogenicity, transmission, as well as projects developing medical countermeasures and suitable animal models for pre-clinical testing of vaccines and therapeutics against 2019-nCoV.

NIGMS is specifically interested in incorporation of data from the 2019-nCoV into ongoing research efforts to develop predictive models for the spread of Coronaviruses and related pathogens.

Applications in response to this NOSI must be submitted using the following targeted funding opportunity:
