NOT-GM-21-019 Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Availability of Urgent Competitive Revisions for Modeling Research on Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and the Causative Virus SARS-CoV-2

NIGMS is issuing this Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) to highlight the urgent need for modeling research on SARS-CoV-2 and Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).


There is an urgent public health need to better understand SARS-CoV-2, particularly to improve the predictive quality of existing models of spread, diagnostics for measurement of transmission, susceptibility and recovery, efficacy and economic impact of mitigations and vaccination strategies, and differences in transmission and natural history among different SARS-CoV-2 variant strains.
