24th October 2014 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

Microsoft-research-logoNew Delhi, Oct 24, 2014: Microsoft Research is soliciting cloud computing proposals for projects that are working towards developing a better understanding of the spread and cure of the Ebola virus and its associated factors. Qualifying proposals will be awarded allocations of Microsoft Azure compute and storage resources.
The United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says the 2014 Ebola epidemic is now affecting multiple countries in West Africa. One imported case from Liberia and associated locally acquired cases in healthcare workers have been reported in the United States. The President of the United States has stated that the Ebola epidemic in West Africa, and the humanitarian crisis there is a top national security priority for the United States.

Researchers can apply for the Microsoft Azure Award for Ebola Research cloud computing resources by providing a simple proposal that states the project’s intent and an outline for how your project will use the resources.
To qualify for our awards program, applicants must be affiliated with an academic institution. In addition to individual investigator projects, we are interested in projects that will support access to services and data of value to researchers and healthcare workers focused on the Ebola crisis.
