The NIH Research Enhancement Award (R15) supports small-scale research projects at educational institutions that provide baccalaureate or advanced degrees for a significant number of the Nation’s research scientists but that have not been major recipients of NIH support.
We have begun posting research opportunities with a new, friendlier table format for the Key Dates section. The table format allows readers to easily identify the available due dates in each review and award cycle.
Stephen I. Katz, M.D., Ph.D., led the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Diseases from 1995 until his passing in 2018. Dr. Katz was a talented physician scientist, NIH leader, and civil servant throughout his career who was profoundly dedicated to mentoring and training the next cadre of scientists. During his memorial service at NIH, you can see this dedication on full display. I, along with countless NIH colleagues, were blessed with Dr. Katz’s mentoring and sage advice. That is why, in his honor, we are pleased to announce the publication of Funding Opportunity Announcements for the Stephen I. Katz Early Stage Investigator Research Project Grant program .
Going forward, you will no longer see individual Notices of Special Interest (NOSIs) cross-referenced in the Related Notices section of the funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) they use for application submission. Instead, FOAs identified for use with NOSIs will include a single link at the top of the Related Notices section that takes you to two NOSI tables – one for active and another for expired NOSIs associated with the FOA. The table format enables you to see, at a glance, the NOSIs that are still active along with the expiration date, activity code(s), and participating organizations.
Nearly all grant applications should be using our updated application forms (FORMS-F) at this point. There are a few notable exceptions.
What’s new with the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts? In addition to faster, more precise search results, a few key filtering features have been updated. Notices of Special Interest (NOSIs) are displayed in the results when searching either “Funding Opportunities” or “Notices.” The “Type of Funding Opportunities” filter now includes “Notice of Special Interest.” … Continue reading “Searching for Funding Just Got a Little Easier”
Over the past year, since we published an essay in Nature Human Behaviour on “NIH policies on experimental studies with humans,” NIH has engaged in a discussion with the basic science community to find ways to meet our shared obligations to study participants and taxpayers, while respecting the unique goals and outcomes of basic science. While we are still in the midst of that conversation, we are pleased to announce real progress in the form of new funding opportunity announcements for Basic Experimental Studies involving Humans.
