PIs/PDs who use major instrumentation/equipment for your research are encouraged to consider this new funding opportunity from NIH. The NIH High-End Instrumentation Grant Program, which provides funding for expensive, high-end instruments costing more than $1 million (with a floor of $750,000), has released a call for proposals with an application deadline of Aug. 13, 2013.
The PI/PD on a proposal must be willing and able to assume administrative/scientific oversight for the instrumentation requested and there must be an internal advisory committee at the institution to assist the PI/PD with administering the grant and overseeing the instrumentation. Visit the NIH website for more details.
If you, or investigators in your college, department or center are interested in submitting an application, my office is available to assist with preparing the non-technical sections and forms of the proposal.
Please contact Monica Swahn, Associate VP for Research, if you would be interested in assistance with the proposal preparation by providing the following information:
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact either Monica or Dr. James Weyhenmeyer, Vice President for Research and Economic Development.
