NSF Accepting RAPID Proposals on Ebola Virus

The National Science Foundation has issued a Dear Colleague Letter on the Ebola Virus.

The letter states that “In light of the recent emergence of the lethal Ebola virus in the US, the National Science Foundation (NSF) is accepting proposals to conduct non-medical, non-clinical care research that can be used immediately to better understand how to model and understand the spread of Ebola, educate about prophylactic behaviors, and encourage the development of products, processes, and learning that can address this global challenge.”

NSF invites researchers to use the Rapid Response Research (RAPID) funding mechanism.
