We’re pleased to announce the availability of administrative supplements to Institutional Development Award (IDeA) U54, P20, and P30 grants for team science projects (NOT-GM-24-001). The supplements are intended for projects that bring together two to four investigators from IDeA states with different scientific expertise to address complex basic, behavioral, clinical, and/or translational research questions through complementary approaches. The questions shouldn’t duplicate those that researchers are currently pursuing through the parent awards and should clearly benefit from the collective efforts of the collaboration.Continue reading “Administrative Supplements for IDeA Team Science Development Projects and Upcoming Webinar”

Now that you understand the major types of research project grants NIGMS supports and where to apply, let’s discuss our Institute’s funding opportunities that focus on research capacity building.
What Is Research Capacity Building?
Part of NIH’s mission is to increase the participation and representation of researchers at institutions that don’t receive large amounts of NIH funding. This includes institutions that have partnerships with Tribal organizations and that educate students from backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical research, and those in states and jurisdictions that traditionally have low levels of NIH funding.Continue reading “A Primer on NIGMS Research Capacity Building Opportunities”
We’d like to make you aware that NIGMS is expanding eligibility within the diversity supplement program (PA-23-189) to include applications from principal investigators (PIs) of parent awards from the following programs:
- Support for Research Excellence (SuRE, R16)
- Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE Phases 1 and 2, P20)
- Institutional Development Award (IDeA) Networks for Clinical and Translational Research (IDeA-CTR, U54)
- IDeA Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE, P20)
- Native American Research Centers for Health (NARCH, S06)
UPDATE: The position is now closed.
We’re seeking a highly qualified scientist to serve as a branch chief in our Division for Research Capacity Building (DRCB). This is a newly created position for the Division as it reorganizes into three branches. Applicants should have significant interest in the programs managed by the Division, which seek to build capacity for conducting basic, clinical, behavioral, and translational research that fall in the mission areas of NIH. These include the Institutional Development Award (IDeA) program, which supports research, research workforce development, and research infrastructure improvements in states where levels of NIH research funding have historically been low; the Native American Research Centers for Health (NARCH) program; the Support for Research Excellence (SuRE) program; and the Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) program. More details are available on the DRCB website.Continue reading “Wanted: Division for Research Capacity Building Branch Chief”
I’m pleased to announce two funding opportunity notices that support clinical and translational research (CTR) in Institutional Development Award (IDeA) states: the IDeA Clinical & Translational Research Network (CTR-N) award (PAR-23-241), and the IDeA Clinical & Translational Research Development (CTR-D) award (PAR-23-257).
These programs support clinical and translational research at IDeA-eligible institutions through programs that develop research infrastructure and human resources, equip investigators and institutions to develop competitive clinical research programs, and strengthen collaborative research that addresses health conditions prevalent in IDeA states. A reissue of PAR-20-175, the CTR-N award continues support for statewide or multistate regional networks in IDeA states that have been conducting significant levels of clinical and translational research. The new CTR-D award supports clinical and translational research, workforce development, and infrastructure enhancement at health research organizations with limited clinical and translational research capacity, to help them build a foundation and enable recipients to conduct research on diseases and health challenges faced by the populations they serve.Continue reading “Clinical and Translational Research Funding Opportunities and Upcoming Webinar”
UPDATE: This position is now closed.
We’re recruiting an accomplished scientist to manage a portfolio of research grants in our Division for Research Capacity Building (DRCB). Job responsibilities involve working collaboratively with other staff to stimulate, plan, advise, direct, and evaluate program activities related to their field of expertise. The candidate selected will manage grants funded through the Native American Research Centers for Health and Institutional Development Award programs (visit the DRCB website for a full list of programs).Continue reading “Wanted: Research Capacity Building Program Director”
We’re pleased to announce the publication of notice NOT-GM-23-040 introducing a change in the institutional eligibility criteria for applications to our Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) Phase 1 (P20).Continue reading “Notice of COBRE Phase 1 Change in Institutional Eligibility”
We’re pleased to announce the availability of administrative supplements to Institutional Development Award (IDeA) Networks for Clinical and Translational Research (IDeA-CTR) (U54) grants to advance the use of electronic health records (EHR) for clinical and observational research (NOT-GM-23-035). Applications are due May 15.
Submissions may propose activities in one or more of the following areas:Continue reading “Administrative Supplements for IDeA-CTR Grants to Advance the Use of Electronic Health Records for Research”
UPDATE: These positions are now closed.
We’re recruiting scientists for positions in our Division for Research Capacity Building (DRCB) and Division of Genetics and Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology (GMCDB). The successful applicants will be responsible for scientific and administrative management of a portfolio of research grants and/or research training and career development awards, and will stimulate, plan, advise, direct, and evaluate program activities related to their field of expertise.
The DRCB position involves overseeing grants supporting research and providing resources for research infrastructure enhancement and capacity building in the basic, translational, and clinical biomedical sciences. The chosen candidate will manage Institutional Development Award and Native American Research Centers for Health programs, and may contribute to other programmatic activities as opportunities and needs emerge. See the DRCB website for more information about the Division’s programs. Individuals with a strong background in clinical and/or translational, behavioral, epidemiological, community engagement, health disparities, and public health research are strongly encouraged to apply. All interested candidates should send a letter of interest to Krishan Arora and Michele McGuirl.Continue reading “Wanted: NIGMS Program Directors”
I’m pleased to announce that the Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) Phase 1 funding opportunity announcement (FOA) (PAR-22-250) has been reissued. The COBRE program supports the establishment and development of innovative biomedical and behavioral research centers at Institutional Development Award (IDeA)-eligible institutions. The goal of this FOA is to establish a center of excellence that helps develop a critical mass of investigators and improve infrastructure in an area of biomedical research.
