Funding Opportunities: Urgent Competitive Revisions to IDeA and NARCH Programs for SARS-CoV-2 Surveillance Studies


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

We’re pleased to announce the availability of supplements to active INBRE (P20), COBRE (P20, P30), IDeA-CTR (U54), and NARCH (S06) awards for sequencing-based surveillance studies of the SARS-CoV-2 virus to track variants circulating in communities the IDeA and NARCH programs serve. The supplements will support SARS-CoV-2 viral genome sequencing and analysis studies. Projects are expected to expand on or collaborate with ongoing SARS-CoV-2 testing studies or programs in order to leverage resources and deliver results quickly to help address the urgent challenge.

Applications are due by March 31, 2021; see NOT-GM-21-031 for additional details.

If you have any questions about this supplement opportunity, please contact me.

NIGMS Diversity Supplements Available to Support Faculty Members


We’re pleased to announce that NIGMS is now accepting diversity supplement applications to support faculty-level investigators developing independent research careers (NOT-GM-21-014). This opportunity is part of our Diversity Supplements Program, which facilitates the recruitment and training of promising scientists from diverse backgrounds (e.g., individuals from groups underrepresented in the biomedical research workforce).

The supplements provide either short- or long-term research support to early career faculty members wishing to participate in ongoing research projects while further developing their research skills and establishing an independent research career.

Urgent Competitive Revisions to NIGMS Grants to Address the Coronavirus Pandemic


We’ve published a notice of special interest (NOSI) (NOT-GM-20-025) to address the urgent need for research on the SARS-CoV-2 virus. We’ll accept competitive revisions (supplements) in three specific scientific areas:

  • Incorporation of data related to SARS-CoV-2 into ongoing research efforts to develop predictive models for the spread of SARS-CoV-2 and other related infectious agents (all grant and cooperative agreement activity codes)
  • Repurposing or modification of diagnostic tools currently under development to enable rapid detection of SARS-CoV-2 infection (SBIR/STTR grants only)
  • Rapid development of potential therapeutic agents for COVID-19 (SBIR/STTR grants only)

Administrative Supplements for Research on Women’s Health in the IDeA States


UPDATE: The slides [PDF] from the recent webinar are now available.

NIGMS, in partnership with the Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH) and twelve other institutes and centers of NIH, invites applications for administrative supplements to eligible Institutional Development Award (IDeA) grants to address important issues of women’s health in the IDeA states. We encourage a broad range of research addressing women’s health issues with a special interest in maternal and infant mortality and morbidity, as well as their underlying causes.

Administrative Supplements for NIGMS Training, Research Education, and Career Development Grants to Develop Curricular, Training, and Evaluation Activities


To continue our efforts to catalyze the modernization of biomedical research training and career development, we invite eligible institutions with NIGMS training (T32, T34), certain research education (R25), or institutional career development (K12) awards to apply for administrative supplements to develop and implement curricular, training, or administrative activities to:

  • Enhance laboratory safety curriculum and a culture of safety in biomedical research training environments (NOT-GM-20-016)
  • Promote safe and inclusive biomedical research training environments (NOT-GM-20-018)
  • Enhance undergraduate biomedical research training (NOT-GM-20-019) (T34 and R25 undergraduate programs only)
  • Enhance program evaluation capacity (NOT-GM-20-020)

NIGMS Administrative Supplements to Support Undergraduate Summer Research


We’re offering administrative supplements to provide summer research experiences for undergraduate students. These supplements are open to all NIGMS-funded investigators with active R01, R35, and R37 awards, including those in their final year of funding or in a no-cost extension. We’ll accept requests under PA-18-591, Administrative Supplements to Existing NIH Grants and Cooperative Agreements (Parent Admin Supp Clinical Trial Optional).

We wish to support students at any stage of their undergraduate career. Students may be U.S. or non-U.S. citizens. We encourage principal investigators to select students who otherwise would not have access to research experiences to participate in this program. Only one request per principal investigator will be considered.

NIGMS Support for Biomedical Data Repositories and Biomedical Knowledgebases


NIH has published two new funding opportunity announcements (FOAs): PAR-20-089, Biomedical Data Repository (U24 – Clinical Trials Not Allowed) and PAR-20-097, Biomedical Knowledgebase (U24 – Clinical Trials Not Allowed). As noted in the FOAs, data repositories and knowledgebases have distinct functions, metrics for success, and sustainability needs. In order to support these resources most effectively, NIGMS intends to fund them as separate cooperative agreement grants. NIGMS applications proposing a free-standing data repository or knowledgebase resource must apply under one of these FOAs. Thus, applications submitted as R01s or R35s will not be considered for funding.

For questions about NIGMS’ support for these resources, please contact Veerasamy Ravichandran.
