Opportunities for Collaborative Research at the NIH Clinical Center (U01)
The goal of this program is to support collaborative translational research projects aligned with NIH efforts to enhance the translation of basic biological discoveries into clinical applications that improve health. It encourages high quality science demonstrating the potential to result in understanding an important disease process or lead to new therapeutic interventions, diagnostics, or prevention strategies within the research interests and priorities of the participating NIH Institutes/Centers (ICs).
The number of awards is contingent upon NIH appropriations and the submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications. Application budgets need to reflect the actual needs of the proposed project. The maximum amount available per application is $500,000 direct costs (exclusive of any contract/consortium F&A) per year; this amount includes Clinical Center costs and intramural investigator's costs attributed to the proposed research project. The NIH Clinical Center costs and intramural investigator's costs will not be included in the award paid to the grantee. The scope of the proposed project should determine the project period. The maximum project period is four (4) years.
