The overarching goal of the McGill Interdisciplinary Initiative in Infection and Immunity (MI4) is to foster interdisciplinary research to discover, develop and implement innovative solutions for infectious and immune threats to human health. The Emerging Threats Grant (ETG) program provides one-time funding for new emergent infectious and immune threats to human health, as identified by the MI4 Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC). The current call for proposals is to address the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak that emerged in Wuhan, China in January 2020, and which is now spreading worldwide.
The MI4 SAC has approved a special Request for Proposal (RFP) for research that addresses this outbreak. There will be one ETG funded.
