National Institutes of Health - Core Centers for Musculoskeletal Biology and Medicine (P30)

Synopsis:

The National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) invites applications for Research Core Centers (P30s) in musculoskeletal biology and medicine. The Core Centers for Musculoskeletal Biology and Medicine (CCMBM) will provide shared facilities and services to groups of established, currently funded investigators addressing scientific problems in musculoskeletal biology and medicine, in order to improve efficiency, accelerate the pace of research, and ensure greater productivity.   

Only one application may be submitted per institution.

Deadlines: 

  • Duke Internal: March 25, 2013
  • Letter of Intent Due Date(s): May 31, 2013
  • Application Due Date(s): July 1, 2013

RFA-AR-14-002 Expiration Date: July 2, 2013

The official announcement and description of this opportunity may be found on the funding agency's website:
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-AR-14-002.html

Areas of Interest:

The CCMBM are intended to enhance the research productivity and provide cost effective, and sometimes specialized services and resources to existing grants (the research base), funded by the NIAMS and other organizations. Research Core Centers could potentially facilitate projects in many areas of musculoskeletal biology and medicine: the skeleton, muscles, connective tissues such as tendon, ligament, and cartilage. The Division of Musculoskeletal Diseases of the NIAMS supports research aimed at improving the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system and its component tissues. Key public health problems addressed by this research include, but are not limited to, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and muscular dystrophies. CCMBM are intended to combine and provide additional resources for research into these areas of human health.

For more information, research areas, and program contacts, please visit the Musculoskeletal Diseases webpage: http://www.niams.nih.gov/Funding/Funding_Opportunities/Supported_Scientific_Areas/Musculoskeletal_Diseases/default.asp

Disciplinary Category:
Multidisciplinary; Medical - Basic Science; Medical - Translational; Physical Sciences & Engineering; Medical - Clinical Science.

Award Amount:
The NIAMS intends to fund up to an estimated 3-4 awards, corresponding to a total of $1.6M Direct Costs ($2.4M Total Costs) in FY 2014. The number of awards is contingent upon NIH appropriations, and the submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications. Future year amounts will depend on annual appropriations.

Direct costs of up to $400,000 per year may be requested. This covers an Administrative Core, two or more Research Cores, and an Enrichment Program. The direct costs for the Enrichment Program must range from a minimum of $30,000 up to $100,000.   Scope of the proposed project should determine the project period.  The maximum period is five years. 
Numerical value: $2,000,000

Nomination Process:
Owing to the sponsor's restriction on the number of applications that may be submitted from Duke, anyone wishing to pursue nomination should submit the following materials as one PDF via the upload feature on the ORS website.

* A letter of support from dean/chair – 1 to 1.5 pages
* Project summary - 2 to 4 pages
* CV – 2 pages

The project summary should describe your project sufficiently for our reviewers to understand what you are proposing and its relevance. Go to the ORS Current Competition page: https://ors.duke.edu/orsmanual/current-competitions. Select the funding opportunity you wish to apply to and upload your materials.

Deadlines:
