Projects FP7

Research projects under NID cover diseases from protozoan , bacterial and helminth infections. The focus is on neglected infectious diseases with a major impact on human health, and with clearly defined unmet medical needs. This is done by supporting multiple projects with focus on translational research. The preferred instruments are large- ( 6-12 mill) and medium-scale ( 3-6 mill) collaborative projects by multi-disciplinary consortia with sufficient critical mass to deliver high-impact results. Various aspects of the diseases are addressed, including drug and vaccine development, diagnostics, immunology of co-infections, and epidemiology. The following table summarises the projects that receive EC funding in the thematic area of Neglected Infectious Diseases.
