Gates Foundation Grant Opportunity: Tuberculosis Biomarkers

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is now accepting letters of inquiry for the new grant program Biomarkers for the Diagnosis of Tuberculosis.

This grant program is part of the Grand Challenges in Global Health initiative. With up to $12 million of funding, the program seeks to validate biomarkers for use in developing a low cost, simple to use test that can quickly and accurately diagnose tuberculosis in low-resource settings. The term biomarker is intended to include all types of markers that have potential utility for tuberculosis diagnosis and can include markers associated with either host or pathogen biology.

Details and application instructions are available at

Letters of inquiry are being accepted online until March 31, 2011 10:00 am PT.

After a review of submitted letters of inquiry, the foundation will invite full grant proposals from selected applicants. 

We look forward to receiving innovative ideas from scientists around the world. Please help us to notify a broad audience of researchers by forwarding this message to others who might be interested in applying.

Thank you for your commitment to solving the world's greatest health challenges.

  1. Pois então Professor Barral Neto, eu até poderia ter condições de submeter um projeto para esta fundação bem como projetos na área de neurociência, epidemiologia do câncer, biologia do câncer e até mesmo na parasitologia. Mas não esqueço quando pedi a renovação da bolsa ao CNPq para permanecer no país como pesquisador após 16 anos de pesquisa na Europa, a mesma me foi negada pelo caro Professor.
