Project Overview

Provide guidance and oversight in the administration of disbursements for local resources and services including: recruitment and hiring of on-the-ground resources; the procurement and payment of expenses in support of clinical studies; facilitation, coordination, and payment of travels and meetings; and assistance in the management of operations in collaboration with Leidos Biomed and the University of Minnesota.

Funding Agency: NIAID DCR

Project Description

The NIAID Division of Clinical Research (DCR) supports clinical research to control and prevent diseases caused by virtually all infection agents. This includes basic and applied research to develop and evaluate therapeutics, vaccines, and diagnostics. In support of the viral hemorrhagic fevers (VHF) and other emerging infectious disease initiatives, Leidos Biomed in partnership with TMG provides management and oversight for the conduct of clinical research studies in Liberia and Guinea. In this time-sensitive initiative, TMG provides guidance and oversight in the administration of disbursements for local resources and services including: recruitment and hiring of on-the-ground resources; the procurement and payment of expenses in support of clinical studies; facilitation, coordination, and payment of travels and meetings; and assistance in the management of operations in collaboration with Leidos Biomed and the University of Minnesota.

The initiative provides on-the-ground disbursement services needed to respond to an urgent health crisis. Such rapid response is required to conduct clinical research during the Zaire Ebola outbreak and to initiate data collection to inform future treatment and prevention options and research design.
