National Institutes of Health (NIH)
  • Comprised of 27 institutes/centers that fund
    basic biomedical and behavioral research in
    specific disease-related areas, such as cancer,
    heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and
    infectious diseases.
  • Institutes and centers also support research
    relating to a particular focus, such as aging,
    child health, mental health, nursing,
    environmental health, or drug abuse/alcohol abuse
  • While all institutes/centers support research in
    the social and behavioral sciences, some do more
    than others, such as the Institutes on Aging,
    Child Health and Human Development, Mental
    Health, Drug Abuse and Alcoholism and Alcohol

National Institute of Nursing Research

Important Fact 1 To Get Funded, You Must Know
your Funding Source (NIH) Inside Out
  • NIH says, To write a successful NIH grant
    application, you'll need to understand the NIH
    granting philosophy.
  • NIH funding derives from Congress, so it is
    important to understand NIHs current budget

High Priorities
  • Health Disparities
  • http//healthdisparities.nih.gov/welcome.html
  • Obesity

  • Heart Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Aging
  • Child Health

How Research Priorities are Set at NIH
  • Often explored through workshops at NIH.
  • If the consensus is to further explore an
    existing area of science, then a program
    announcement (PA) for research applications is
    developed. It will be published in the NIH Guide,
    stay open for three years, and usually will have
    the standard NIH deadlines (Feb 1, June 1 and Oct
  • Alternatively, funds may be set aside for hot
    topic research areas. A request for one-time
    only applications (RFA) will be published in the
    NIH Guide with specific deadlines.
  • However, most research applications submitted to
    NIH are investigator initiated, and do not
    reference any PA or RFA.

Important Fact 2 NIH Says It Will Fund Any Area
of Biomedical/Behavioral Science, But
  • Since NIH is open to new ideas in all areas of
    biomedical and behavioral science, a good idea is
    always worth talking to NIH about
  • Can be submitted for funding as an unsolicited
  • However, NIH institutes and centers identify
    priority research areas as either
  • Program Announcements
  • suggests applications in ongoing research
    interest for next 3 years, or
  • Requests for Applications
  • solicits applications for one-time only hot
    topics, has specific deadlines, which are then
    published in the NIH Guide to Grants and
  • http//grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/index.html

Before You Contact NIH
  • Check out what NIH has already funded in your
    area(s) of interest
  • CRISP (Computer Retrieval of Information on
    Scientific Projects), a searchable database of
    abstracts of all research funded by NIH
    (http//crisp.cit.nih.gov/ ).
  • Talk to recent awardees.
  • Usually generous with their time and ideas
  • Can share their respective funded proposals.
  • GRC can facilitate those connections.

Important Fact 3 Always Contact NIH
  • Check NIH institute or center web pages
    (http//www.nih.gov/icd/ ) for the full range of
    program areas and program contacts.
  • Pay attention to National Advisory Council
    information--future research agenda often
  • Establish a dialogue with NIH program staff
  • They want to talk with you.

BEFORE You Contact NIH
  • What is an NIH grant mechanism?
  • F-Fellowships K-Career Development N-Research
    Contracts P-Program Project Research Center
    GrantsR-Research Project Grants (good proportion
    of NIHs budget) S-Research-Related Programs
    T-Training Grants U-Cooperative Agreements and
    Y-Interagency Agreements.
  • Good descriptions of these mechanisms
  • http//www.niaid.nih.gov/ncn/grants/mechan.htm
  • http//grants1.nih.gov/grants/funding/funding_prog

New Investigators at NIH
  • Encouraged to submit traditional research project
    grant (R01) applications, identifying themselves
    on the application face page as a new
    investigatorand also in biosketch.
  • Reviewers will specifically be asked to consider
  • Approach reviewers will place more emphasis on
    how applicant demonstrates that
    techniques/approaches are feasible
  • Investigator reviewers will place more emphasis
    on applicants training and research potential,
    rather than track record and number of
  • Environment reviewers will look for evidence of
    institutional commitment (space and time) to
    perform the research

AREA Academic Research Enhancement Program (R15)
  • For institutions receiving less than 3 million
    per year (over last 7 years) from NIH
  • Recognizes role of teaching institutions in
    education of future researchers and practitioners
  • Seeks to strengthen undergraduate experience
  • Supports meritorious research for new knowledge
    and teaching vitality
  • Small award--150,000 total for up to three years
  • Applications due 1/25 5/25 and 9/25
  • http//grants1.nih.gov/grants/funding/area.htm

AREA Review Criteria
  • AREA uses same review criteria and two-stage peer
    review process as other NIH programs.
  • Special considerations regarding the investigator
    and environment are unique to AREA.
  • PIs experience must be appropriate for
    supervising students who are conducting research.
  • Applicants school or academic component must be
    suitable for an award in terms of likelihood for
    strengthening the research environment and
    exposing more students to research.
  • Collaboration acceptable if majority of research
    is conducted at an AREA eligible institution

AREA Review Criteria (cont.)
  • Reviewers will consider two factors to determine
    if a fitting research environment is evident
  • Documentation of the availability of
    well-qualified students to assist with the
    proposed research project.
  • Evidence that students have pursued, or are
    likely to pursue, meaningful careers in the
    biomedical and behavioral sciences.

NIH Small Grant Program (R03)
  • Faculty from all types of institutions are
    eligible to apply.
  • Call before submitting some NIH
    institutes/centers do NOT accept R03
  • Provides limited funding (usually not more than
    50,000) for a short period of time.
  • Examples of the types of projects
  • Pilot or feasibility studies
  • Secondary analysis of existing data
  • Small, self-contained research projects
  • Development of research methodology
  • Development of new research technology
  • http//grants1.nih.gov/grants/funding/r03.htm

Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant Award
  • Intended to encourage new, exploratory and
    developmental research projects by providing
    support for the early stages of development
  • Such as projects to assess the feasibility of a
    novel area of investigation
  • Or an experimental system with potential to
    enhance health-related research.
  • Combined budget for direct costs for 2-year
    project 275,000 max.
  • http//grants1.nih.gov/grants/funding/r21.htm

Career Development Awards (K Awards)
  • Research training grants for
  • Scientists with a research doctorate, or
  • Those with a health profession doctorate
  • Opportunities from postdoctoral to independent
  • http//grants.nih.gov/training/careerdevelopmentaw
  • Career Award Wizard is designed to help identify
    an Individual NIH Career Award that might be
    right for the applicant
  • http//grants.nih.gov/training/kwizard/index.htm

What is a Modular Budget?
  • The Modular Grant format replaces the regular
    research application format for requests up to
    250,000 direct costs per year.
  • NOT a grant program. It is a revised application
    and award process for R01, R15 and other kinds of
  • Applicants request total direct costs in modules
    of 25,000, reflecting appropriate support for
  • Typical modular grant application will request
    the same number of modules in each year.
  • Categorical dollar information should NOT be
    provided in the application however, the
    responsibilities for the Principal Investigator
    and all key personnel must be specifically
  • Use PHS-398 (modular budget instructions on p.
  • http//grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/modular/modul

  • NIHs application form used for all research
    project grants and career awards (K awards)
  • If responding to a specific request for
    applications (RFA) or program announcement (PA),
    contact NIH for additional instructions.
  • The instructions in the RFA or PA may differ from
    the general instructions in PHS-398 if so, they
    will supersede the general.

What Happens to Your Application?
  • Important to understand the two-step peer review
    process at NIHvery different from other federal
  • http//grants1.nih.gov/grants/peer/peer.htm
  • Step One Peer review study sections are managed
    by Institute or Center administrators--list of
    140 standing study sections appears at
  • Each study section has between 12-24 members who
    are primarily from academia
  • 60-100 applications reviewed at each study
    section meeting
  • Important Always submit a cover letter with your
  • Suggest the Integrated Review Group (IRG) study
    section(s) best able to assess your proposals
  • State Institute or Center most likely to fund it
  • Cite whom at NIH you have been talking to.

  • Peer review is the essence of what NIH is all
  • http//www.csr.nih.gov/review/policy.asp
  • New video on peer review at NIH
  • http//www.csr.nih.gov/Video/Video.asp
  • After initial review, a second level of peer
    review is done by NIH Institute or Center
    (National Advisory Councils)
  • Final decisions depend on Institutes or Centers
    total research portfolio, type of grant, grant
    size, and grantee (newer investigator, minority,
    woman, etc.).

NIH Review Criteria
  • Significance Does the study address an important
    problem? How will scientific knowledge or
    clinical practice be advanced? What will be the
    effect of these studies on the concepts, methods,
    technologies, treatments, services, or
    preventative interventions that drive this field?
  • Approach Are the conceptual or clinical
    framework, design, methods, and analyses
    adequately developed, well integrated, well
    reasoned, and appropriate to the aims of the
    project? Does the applicant acknowledge potential
    problem areas and consider alternative tactics?
  • Innovation Is the project original and
    innovative? For example Does the project
    challenge existing paradigms or clinical
    practice address an innovative hypothesis or
    critical barrier to progress in the field? Does
    the project develop or employ novel concepts,
    approaches, methodologies, tools, or technologies
    for this area?

NIH Review Criteria (ctd)
  • Investigators Are the investigators
    appropriately trained and well suited to carry
    out this work? Is the proposed work appropriate
    to the experience level of the principal
    investigator and other researchers? Does the
    investigative team bring complementary and
    integrated expertise to the project (if
  • Environment Does the scientific environment in
    which the work will be done contribute to the
    probability of success? Do the proposed studies
    benefit from unique features of the scientific
    environment, or subject populations, or employ
    useful collaborative arrangements? Is there
    evidence of institutional support?
