Funding Applications Due May 25 and June 5 for Research Projects on Healthcare-Associated Infections and Antibiotic Resistance
Funding applications are due by May 25 for demonstration and dissemination projects in two areas: preventing healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) and developing efforts for combating antibiotic-resistant bacteria (CARB). Also, a June 5 deadline has been set for large research projects involving both HAI and CARB. The HAI research projects should advance the knowledge of HAI detection, prevention and reduction. CARB research project proposals should address ways to promote appropriate antibiotic use, reduce the transmission of resistant bacteria or prevent HAIs in the first place. These funding opportunities are open to researchers who focus on health care settings including long-term care, ambulatory care and acute-care hospitals and on transitions between care settings.
