The Partnerships for Enhanced Engagement in Research (PEER) program, managed by the U.S. Global Development Lab at USAID, promotes bilateral and regional cooperation between US government funded scientists and developing country investigators to address global development challenges, advance science diplomacy, and build scientific capacity in developing countries. The agreement is implemented under a cooperative agreement with the U.S. National Academy of Sciences (NAS). The PEER program is competitive research award-based program which invites developling country researchers to apply for research funds in partnership with scientists supported by the National Institute of Health (NIH). NCI and USAID are committed to supporting PEER as an Interagency collaboration which brings together programmatic and Scientific expertise to develop collaborations, provide training opportunities, and enhance public health and biomedical research in LMICs particularly around cancer and non communicable disease (NCD) related research.
