Grand Challenges: New Interventions for Global Health
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is launching a new Grand Challenge: New Interventions for Global Health. This challenge focuses on innovative concepts for vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics with the potential to be translated into safe, effective, affordable, and widely utilized interventions to protect against the acquisition, progression, or transmission of infectious diseases, or to provide a cure for infectious diseases, in resource‐limited settings.
This request for proposals will fund full awards that could include grants, program related investments, or contracts up to USD $10,000,000 per awardee for up to four years. Full awards must include an industry, biotech, or other translational partner, either leading or participating in the application. We will also consider applications for pilot awards of up to USD $2,000,000 and up to four years to explore concepts that require additional investigation, with the anticipation that successful applicants will apply for a full award in subsequent years. Pilot awards do not include a requirement for a biotech or translation partner, but such partnerships would still be welcome.
Application deadline is January 13, 2015. For a detailed description of this challenge, see the Request for Proposals to the right, including translated versions.
