NIH GUIDE, Volume 26, Number 37, November 7, 1997


Fogarty International Center

A Joint Fund of $2 million per year has been established for S&T cooperation with
Egypt under the Gore-Mubarak Joint Economic Partnership.  In 1996 the U.S.-Egypt
Joint Board, which oversees the fund, chose biotechnology as one of four priority
areas for support. The Board has now established a program of small ($50,000)
grants to support the add-on costs of collaboration between active U.S. and
Egyptian laboratories.  U.S. participants may be Intramural or Extramural
scientists, or from the private sector.  A Request for Applications (RFA) is
available from the Fogarty International Center (FIC).  Each application should
identify two principal investigators (one American and one Egyptian).  The
deadline is December 1, 1997.
