NIH FOA for Bioengineering Research Grants (BRG) (R01)



TITLE:  Bioengineering Research Grants (BRG) (R01)

PAR-13-137, reissue of PA-10-009

Companion Funding Opportunity:

PA-12-284, R21 Exploratory/Developmental Bioengineering Research Grants

PAR-10-234, R01 Bioengineering Research Partnerships



DUE:  Earliest submission date  5 May  2013


SCOPE:  The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement is to encourage collaborations between the life and physical sciences that: 1) apply a multidisciplinary bioengineering approach to the solution of a biomedical problem; and 2) integrate, optimize, validate, translate or otherwise accelerate the adoption of promising tools, methods and techniques for a specific research or clinical problem in basic, translational, or clinical science and practice. An application may propose design-directed, developmental, discovery-driven, or hypothesis-driven research and is appropriate for small teams applying an integrative approach that can increase our understanding of and solve problems in biological, clinical or translational science.  Projects should clearly serve the mission of one or more of the NIH Institutes or Centers participating in this FOA  (see URL). Investigators are encouraged to contact the scientific/ research contacts for individual institute focus areas that will be supported. Applications that seek to establish proof-of-concept are encouraged to respond to the Exploratory Bioengineering Research Grant (EBRG) FOA [ ].  Large team projects with a specific goal that can be addressed in 5-10 years are encouraged to respond to the Bioengineering Research Partnership (BRP) FOA [ ].
