National and Regional Resources for the Scientific Community

0 comments

We’re pleased to share that the NIGMS National and Regional Resource Program (R24) funding opportunity announcement (FOA) has been reissued (PAR-22-065). This program began in 2019 to provide access to state-of-the-art facilities, equipment, technologies, research tools, and software that aren’t generally available to a large number of researchers. To date, the program has established 12 resources that serve the scientific community on a national or multistate regional basis and offer a breadth of technologies. Below, we highlight just a few. We encourage you to explore all of the resources made available through this program and to learn more about the new FOA on our National and Regional Resources webpage.

New Research on Interventions R01 Funding Announcement and Upcoming Webinar

0 comments

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

NIGMS has reissued its funding opportunity announcement (FOA) for Research on Interventions that Promote the Careers of Individuals in the Biomedical Research Enterprise (R01) (PAR-21-269). In line with a key mission area of the Institute—ensuring the vitality and continued productivity of the research enterprise—the FOA encourages studies on interventions aimed to enhance research-oriented individuals’ interest, motivation, persistence, and preparedness for careers in the biomedical research workforce. Potential intervention focus areas include, but are not limited to, networking and mentoring, institutional climate, harassment, and structural racism and discrimination.

The new FOA no longer includes research designed solely to inform interventions; applicants must also conduct and test an intervention. Proposals must test the effectiveness of an intervention using robust experimental designs, such as randomized control trial approaches, case controls, matched pair design, or other designs appropriate to perform rigorous research on effective interventions aiming to increase success in the biomedical research workforce.

NIGMS staff members always closely examine each principal investigator’s (PI’s) other research support when making funding recommendations and awards. In addition, the Institute has several policies to ensure a diversified portfolio of grants. At the May 20, 2021, NAGMS Advisory Council meeting, councilors approved our updated NIGMS guidelines for funding investigators with substantial other research support. Informally, this was known as our $750K policy. What’s the policy, and why are we changing it now?
