max award: $600,000
min award: none
cost sharing, matching: No
number of awards: 2
type of funding: Cooperative Agreement

The National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Science Foundation
(NSF) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) (hereafter "the
Government" or "the Participating Agencies") invite applications for the
establishment of "International Cooperative Biodiversity Groups" (ICBG)
to address the interdependent issues of biodiversity conservation,
economic capacity, and human health through discovery and development of
therapeutic agents for diseases of importance in developing countries,
as well as those important to developed countries. Eligibility for this
competition is limited to groups that are currently funded by ICBG R21
planning grant awards issued in 2003. Innovative and integrated
approaches to access to genetic resources and benefit-sharing with host
country stakeholders and participants is an important component of the
overall program. Particularly relevant disease areas and health needs
include HIV-AIDS and its opportunistic infections and associated
malignancies, tuberculosis, malaria, other emerging diseases, mental
disorders of adults and children, cancer, drug abuse and cardiovascular
and pulmonary diseases. Applicants are encouraged to consider marine
coral reef organisms as well as new sources of previously unexplored or
under explored microorganisms, including but not limited to those
arising from symbiosis, extreme environments such as thermovents, and
deep sea microbes. Applications that propose to work primarily with
plants for pharmaceutical drug discovery are encouraged to propose
research and training related to phytomedicine analysis. Research and
capacity building toward the development of agricultural agents is
permissible as a secondary activity where it complements work on human
health agents.
