NIGMS National and Regional Resources (R24 - Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages applications for support of resources that will provide access to state-of-the-art equipment, technologies, research tools, materials, organisms, software, and/or services to a substantial regional (multi-state) or national user base. Only those resources with technical capabilities that fall within the NIGMS-supported program areas are eligible for awards. The resources should already be established or may be formed through consolidation of existing local or regional facilities. The intent is to provide resource access to investigators without regard to the specific biomedical focus of their research, while not duplicating or replacing resources supported by sources such as other NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) or host institutions. The resource is expected to be maintained or upgraded to current best practices, make its capabilities and availability known to the biomedical research community through outreach activities, and provide user training and support.

The FOA does not support major new research and development efforts and stand-alone data resources and databases are not eligible.


  • Letter of Intent Due Date(s): 30 days prior to the application due date
  • Application Due Date(s): June 14, 2022; June 14, 2023; June 14, 2024

Eligibility Requirements

For this FOA, at least one of the Program Director(s)/Principal Investigator(s) must devote at least 2.4 person-months and at least one senior scientist must devote greater than >6 person-months to the resource.

Only those resources with technical capabilities that enable research activities within the program areas supported by NIGMS will be supported. Resources that support clinically-oriented research must be within one of the Institute's areas of clinical research focus. Resources that collect, maintain and distribute clinical samples (biobanks) or stand-alone data resources and databases will not be supported by this FOA. Contacting the Scientific/Research staff in advance of application submission is strongly recommended. Applications that do not adhere to the eligibility criteria will not be reviewed.
