The "You should apply for this" message from a colleague popped up on my work email seven months ago. Reading through the funding announcement, I thought "Yeah, this is pretty much exactly in line with what I'm doing. But ugh!! Do I want to put myself through this again?" For the sake of clarity, I have entered the autumn of my career, secure as a Professor of Emergency Medicine (Step 4), with no major push to get funded. I have always been proud of my .400 grant funding batting average. I opened up hot with a solid first round NIH funded grant, followed by a similarly scored and funded second proposal. But my last three submissions resulted in the dreaded You seem like a nice guy and we don't want to hurt your feelings 40-45 score. Another few failures would plant me firmly on the Mendoza line.

The non-susceptibility to infection of a large group of individuals in a population. A variety of factors can be responsible for herd immunity and this gives rise to the different definitions used in the literature. Most commonly, herd immunity refers to the case when, if most of the population is immune, infection of a single individual will not cause an epidemic. Also, in such immunized populations, susceptible individuals are not likely to become infected. Herd immunity can also refer to the case when unprotected individuals fail to contract a disease because the infecting organism has been banished from the population.
