Funding Opportunity: Biomedical Technology Optimization and Dissemination Program


UPDATE: The webinar video and slides [PDF] are now available.

We’re pleased to share the notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) for our biomedical technology optimization and dissemination (BTOD) centers (RM1) (PAR-23-110). The goals of the BTOD centers are to optimize state-of-the-art, NIGMS mission-relevant, late-stage technologies, and to disseminate these technologies to both experts and nonexperts in biomedical research for their broad use. A BTOD center may focus on optimizing a single technology or multiple integrated technologies. Community engagement activities should result in broad dissemination of the optimized technologies for the research community’s sustainable use.

This NOFO is an update of our biomedical technology development and dissemination centers program.

Receipt dates for BTOD center applications are twice per year, in January and May. The first application receipt date is May 26, 2023.

We strongly encourage anyone interested in applying to attend our upcoming webinar:

Wednesday, April 5, 3:00-4:30 p.m. ET
Zoom meeting link (Link no longer available)

During the webinar, we’ll present an overview of the program and answer your questions. Participants requiring sign language interpretation and/or other reasonable accommodations should submit a request using our contact form at least 5 days prior to the webinar.

For more information and FAQs about the program and currently funded centers, see the BTOD webpage. Potential applicants are encouraged to consult with NIGMS staff about the suitability of proposed centers for this NOFO.  If you have any questions about this funding opportunity, please contact us.
