Fogarty International Center (FIC) 

A limited competition is announced by the Fogarty International Center 
(FIC) for the RFA "International Malaria Research Training Program 
Award."  The purpose of this award is to train or expand the 
capabilities of scientists and health professionals from developing 
countries, in which malaria is endemic, to engage in research relevant 
to the pathogenesis of severe malarial anemia.  The FIC currently 
supports innovative, collaborative malaria research training programs 
that contribute to the long-term goal of harnessing scientific 
knowledge and skills to enhance efforts to prevent malaria-related 
morbidity and mortality and to control malaria transmission to endemic 
developing countries (

The NIAID-funded RFA for research grants entitled "Malaria Vaccine 
Development:  Understanding Malarial Anemia" (AI-01-007) and the 
companion FIC RFA for associated malaria anemia research training 
programs (TW-01-006) were competed in FY 2001.  To receive a FIC 
malaria research training program award, a Principal Investigator had 
to have received a NIAID malaria anemia research award.  Of four NIAID 
malaria research awardees, one qualified for a FIC research training 
program award.  Therefore, a new limited competition is open to those 
three NIAID awardees that did not originally apply for a FIC malaria 
research training program award.  Letters will be sent to those 
awardees inviting them to apply for the FIC malaria research training
