0 comments

UPDATE: The SuRE webinar occurred on April 2. The video and presentation slides [PDF] are now available.

We’re pleased to announce that two funding opportunities for the Support for Research Excellence (SuRE) program have been reissued.

SuRE awards support investigator-initiated research projects in NIH mission areas and are open to faculty at institutions that award bachelor and/or graduate science degrees, receive limited NIH research support, and either serve a substantial number of students supported by Pell grants or are historically Black colleges and universities or Tribal colleges and universities. Faculty investigators who aren’t currently program directors/principal investigators (PD/PIs) of an active NIH research project grant are eligible to apply for a SuRE award (PAR-24-144). Faculty who haven’t had any prior independent research funding as PD/PIs are encouraged to apply for the SuRE-First award (PAR-24-145).

Administrative Supplements for IDeA Team Science Development Projects and Upcoming Webinar

0 comments

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.
