tions rather than applications by individual scientists. It is contacting experts in infectious and parasitic diseases at leading scientific organizations, soliciting nominations. Nominees will be invited to participate

To be eligible, scientists must hold a full-time appointment at a university or other nonprofit scientific institution outside the United States. They must have published significant articles in international, peer-reviewed, English-language scientific journals in the areas of infectious diseases or

An expert panel will help HHMI evaluate the nominees. The scientists will be assessed on the basis of their research accomplishments, their potential for making significant contributions, and the scientific merit and potential benefit of their proposed research. HHMI anticipates that grants will be made to scientists working in basic science, as well as those using therapeutic and preventive approaches. Details on the competition are available at: http://www.hhmi.org/grants/international.

"Recent techniques in genomic sequencing have revealed the complete genetic material of organisms that cause devastating diseases," said Joseph G. Perpich, HHMI's vice president for grants and special programs. "HHMI has a historic opportunity to become involved at a pivotal point in research that promises to unlock the secrets of these pathogens through molecular genetics and immunology, and to develop treatments that target specific functions of the organisms."
