ESCMID Research grants help young and excellent investigators to pursue groundbreaking research by funding 1 year projects in the field of Bacterial Infections & Diseases.

Main features

For the Research Grant programme 2020 ESCMID only accepts projects dealing with Bacterial Infections & Diseases (incl. diagnostics, pathogenesis, antibacterial susceptibility & resistance, antibacterial stewardship, vaccines).

Projects dealing with Fungal/Viral/Parasitic Infections and Diseases (incl. diagnostics, pathogenesis, antifungal/antiviral/antiparasitic susceptibility & resistance, stewardship, vaccines) will be considered again next year, and thus proposals on Fungal/Viral/Parasitic Infections will neither be reviewed this year nor be kept for next year.
