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

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.
