Collaborative Program Grant for Multidisciplinary Teams (RM1)

National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS)

Indirect Overhead Rate: Full

Only one application is allowed per institution. Please submit your internal application package to BWHBRI@PARTNERS.ORG.

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) encourages Collaborative Program Grant applications from institutions/organizations that propose to conduct research to address complex and challenging biomedical problems and is designed to support research in which funding a team of interdependent investigators offers significant advantages over support of individual and multiple PD/PI research grants.

Successful Collaborative Program Grant applications will bring together scientists to apply complementary approaches to work on an important and well-defined problem. Applications may address any area of science within the NIGMS mission, which is to support basic research that increases understanding of biological processes at a range of levels, from molecules and cells to tissues, whole organisms and populations. NIGMS also supports research in a limited number of clinical areas that affect multiple organ systems (see here for scientific areas supported by NIGMS). Truly new interdisciplinary ideas for approaching significant biological problems are encouraged. Applications that bridge the research interests of more than one NIGMS division are also encouraged, but must remain within the scope of the NIGMS mission. Consultation with NIGMS staff (see below) prior to preparing an application is strongly encouraged.
