With the departure of Ming Lei, a search is open for an outstanding candidate to serve as director of our Division for Research Capacity Building (DRCB).
DRCB seeks to enhance the research, research training, research infrastructure, and faculty development of institutions in states and jurisdictions that have historically received low levels of NIH support. DRCB is thus responsible for both broadening the distribution of NIH biomedical research funding and supporting NIGMS’ commitment to developing a diverse biomedical research workforce. DRCB manages a number of highly impactful initiatives, including the Institutional Development Awards (IDeA), Native American Research Centers for Health (NARCH), Support for Research Excellence (SuRE), and Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) programs.Continue reading “Wanted: Division for Research Capacity Building Director”
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)
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”
We’re pleased to announce that the Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) Phase 3 notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) (PAR-23-216) 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 NOFO is to solidify the research base built in Phases 1 and 2 through continued support of research and research infrastructure and to implement strategies to sustain research excellence beyond COBRE funding.
Application due date: September 26, 2023
Earliest start date: July 2024
We’re pleased to share that the notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) for the Native American Research Centers for Health (NARCH) program (PAR-23-166) has been reissued. NARCH supports federally recognized American Indian/Alaska Native Tribes and Tribal colleges or universities, Tribal health programs, and Tribal organizations. The program funds health-related research, research career enhancement, and research infrastructure-enhancement activities. This NOFO is led by NIGMS with additional participating NIH institutes, centers, and offices.
A NARCH award is for up to 5 years with an annual budget of up to $1.3 million in direct costs. The first NARCH application due date is July 8, 2024.Continue reading “Funding Opportunity: Native American Research Centers for Health (NARCH)”
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 that the IDeA Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) funding opportunity announcement (FOA) (PAR-23-100) has been issued. INBRE funds one statewide network of higher education and research institutions in each Institutional Development Award (IDeA)-eligible state and Puerto Rico to build biomedical research capacity through supporting faculty research and mentoring, student participation in research, and infrastructure enhancements at network institutions.
Application due date: June 26, 2023
Earliest start date: April 2024
I’m pleased to announce that the Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) Phase 2 funding opportunity announcement (FOA) (PAR-23-063) 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 strengthen successful Phase 1 centers through further research infrastructure improvements and continued development of investigators with shared scientific interests who can compete effectively for independent research funding.
Application receipt date: May 29, 2023
Earliest start date: April 2024
