The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) is inactivating
its sponsorship of two Program Announcements (PAs).  NIAID will not give special
consideration for funding to applications in response these PAs received after
February 1, 1999.

NIAID regularly reviews its portfolio of active program announcements.  When the
objectives of PAs have been attained, NIAID announces inactivation of those PAs.

NIAID supports highly scientifically meritorious applications in all areas of
research within its mission, including the scientific areas delineated in these
PAs.  PA inactivation simply means that special consideration for funding beyond
normal paylines will NO LONGER be given to applications on the research topics
identified in the inactivated PAs.  However, such applications will be accepted,
reviewed, and considered for funding with all other investigator-initiated

At any time, potential applicants can obtain a current listing of active NIAID
PAs on the NIAID WWW site at URL:
