An introduction to NIAID's international program of infectious diseases and immunology research through presentations that describe specific collaborative research projects and approaches.

This symposium will provide information on the international research activities of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). NIAID has the largest and the longest-running international program at the NIH; providing approximately $450 million per year to support global health research and training that targets infectious diseases, immunology and related fields of science. The symposium will address the scope and approach of NIAID’s global health programs and include examples of successful collaborative research involving both US Government scientists and academic investigators working in partnership with international colleagues. It will also describe career opportunities for individuals interested in global infectious disease research that informs public health policy and clinical care practice worldwide.
