What ID Researchers Should Know About PCORI Funding
IDSA continues to engage with the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) on the importance of infectious diseases (ID) comparative effectiveness research. Following up on our joint IDSA-PCORI webinar highlighting PCORI funding opportunities, IDSA has developed an educational resource on our website for members interested in pursuing PCORI funding. The guide directs members to PCORI’s resources, provides advice when considering an ID proposal, and lists contact information for ID-funded PCORI investigators. IDSA will continue to update the website as more resources are developed.
  
Research on Community-Acquired Pneumonia: Proposals Due May 4
Just announced: PCORI is looking to fund new research on “comparing the effectiveness and safety of alternative antibiotic regimens in the empiric outpatient treatment of adults with community-acquired pneumonia” (see page 21 of PCORI’s announcement (PDF) for its second round of 2016 funding). IDSA has long highlighted the importance of PCORI-funded infectious disease research and strongly supports PCORI’s prioritization of this research topic. Letters of Intent for proposals are due by 5 pm, EST May 4 and can be submitted through PCORI’s online portal.
