UK-Indonesia Joint Health Research Call on Infectious Diseases

The UK Medical Research Council (MRC) and the Dana Ilmu Pengetahuan Indonesia (DIPI) are pleased to invite basic research proposals to the UK-Indonesia: Joint Health Research Call on infectious diseases through the Newton Fund.

This initiative will provide funding for high quality 2 year collaborative research projects focusing on infectious diseases of relevance to Indonesia.

In total, up to £3m will be made available for this initiative: up to £2m from the MRC and up to approximately £1m (20bn Rupiah) from DIPI.

Objectives and scope
The funders wish to support basic biomedical research in health areas of importance to the Indonesian population, which will lead to future health benefits in Indonesia, particularly for the poorest and most vulnerable in society. This call for collaborative proposals will require applicants based in Indonesia and the UK to work together in partnership on research projects.
This initiative will provide funding for high quality 2 year collaborative research projects focused on addressing infectious diseases of relevance to Indonesia. DIPI and MRC welcome proposals across the spectrum of infectious diseases and have highlighted the following areas of interest as particular priorities:
  • Dengue, dengue-like illness and other vector-borne diseases
  • Malaria
  • Avian Influenza
  • Hepatitis
  • Tuberculosis
The funders welcome hypothesis driven research proposals including, but not limited to, the following:
  • Basic, aetiological and exploratory research relevant to disease pathogens
  • Molecular epidemiology, aetiology, biomarker research
  • Vector biology relevant to human disease
  • Host pathogen response, development of protective immune responses
  • Understanding behaviour, social and/or economic determinants of infectious diseases.
Research questions addressing non-communicable diseases caused by infectious diseases are welcome; however the infectious disease component must be the primary area of focus.
Although not a requirement of the call, the funders welcome applications that incorporate elements of capacity building into research projects
Applications outside of the scope of this call include, but are not limited to:
  • Standalone surveillance activities
  • Standalone public health surveys
  • Downstream drug development
