Current status: We anticipate awarding more discretionary funding in 2015, with an announcement following our Executive Board meeting in November 2015.
For discretionary funding awards, the proposed project should be limited to a 12-18 month duration. Requests should not exceed $100,000, inclusive of 22% indirect costs based on total dollars requested. The proposed project must address NoroCORE priorities. Proposals must clearly articulate the need for the project and why the proposed work will make a difference. The NoroCORE Executive Board has identified high priority areas (see below), however, other proposals consistent with the NoroCORE mission will be considered.
- Further advances in in vitro cultivation of human noroviruses.
- Comparative and/or validation studies for detecting norovirus in complex sample matrices.
- Determination of mechanism of action for novel prevention and control strategies that have not been previously investigated, nor are funded by other sources.
Any investigator from a NoroCORE-funded institution who is not designated to receive funding in Year 5 OR any other outside investigator. Only investigators located in the U.S. are eligible to apply.
