The Non-HIV Anti-Infective Therapeutics Special Emphasis Panel [IDM (10)] reviews Small Business Innovation Research [SBIR] and Small Business Technology Transfer Research [STTR] grant applications that focus on the development of therapeutic agents to combat bacterial, viral, fungal, parasitic, prion infections and disease vectors.
The List of Reviewers lists all present, whether permanent or temporary, to provide the full scope of expertise present on that date. Lists are posted 30 days before the meeting and are tentative, pending any last minute changes.
- Development and/or testing of novel anti-infective agents or therapeutic process to fight infective agents using culture systems or animal models.
- Development of traps, biocides or pesticides active against infectious disease vectors.
- Development of processes to optimize industrial production of non-HIV anti-infective agents.
