Description: The purpose of this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to improve national capacity to address the growing problem of vector-borne diseases (VBDs) via support for regional Centers of Excellence (COEs) for vector-borne diseases. The project objectives are threefold: 1) conduct applied research on approaches to prevent vector bites or suppress the populations of regionally important arthropod vectors and their associated human disease agents in the environment; 2) train a new generation of public health entomologists to serve as subject matter experts for arthropod pathogen vectors at state/local levels by involving graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in applied research; and 3) strengthen linkages and collaborative relationships between the academic community and state/territorial/tribal/local public health organizations, vector management programs and other potentially relevant stakeholder groups, as needed, to develop, evaluate and implement vector and vector-borne pathogen suppression strategies. The primary focus should be on applied research, with training and communities of practice elements designed to enhance applied research outcomes.
