Notice is hereby given that the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), will convene a public information session (Town Hall meeting) on March 7, 2011 at the Bethesda Marriott in Bethesda, MD to discuss plans to establish a new NIAID Leadership Group for a Clinical Research Network on Infectious Diseases other than HIV.
The establishment of this new program was first announced at the October 26, 2010 NIAID Town Hall Meeting on NIAID's HIV/AIDS Clinical Trials Networks (see: http://www.niaid.nih.gov/news/townhall/Pages/restructuringNIAIDCTN.aspx). This new effort presents NIAID with an opportunity to expand clinical research on infectious diseases other than HIV using a multi-site clinical trials infrastructure not previously available to non-AIDS investigators.
At the March 7, 2011 meeting NIAID leadership will describe NIAID's current clinical research programs and outline plans for, and respond to questions regarding, the new NIAID Leadership Group for a Clinical Research Network on Infectious Diseases other than HIV.
