Funding

SHIP is still seeking to fill gaps in our project pipeline that were not addressed in our First 2 RFA’s. We would welcome concept notes (2 pages max) in any of the topics below

  1. Drug Discovery, vaccine and Translational Medicine Applications:

    TB:

    1. Proposals are sought to identify new strategies for treating patients with existing TB drugs with the goal of improving patient compliance and thereby outcome.
    2. Therapeutic vaccine
        
  2. Medical Devices Projects:

    Non Communicable Diseases:

    1. South Africa has an emerging epidemic in the field of non communicable diseases. Prevention is better than cure and proposals should seek to develop early diagnosis devices or interventions for diabetes..
    2. Understanding the impact of pharmacogenomics on healthcare outcomes. Proposals should seek to develop new approaches/devices to optimize treatment and improve patient outcomes.
