Small Research Grants for Establishing Basic Science-Clinical Collaborations to Understand Structural Birth Defects (R03 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to promote initial establishment of basic science-clinical collaborations by providing small grants to teams of basic scientists, physician scientists, and/or clinicians. These interdisciplinary teams may include but are not limited to the following: developmental biologists, cell biologists, geneticists, genomicists, physician-scientists including individuals with DVM/VMD degrees, clinicians, epidemiologists, biostatisticians, and/or bioinformaticists.
Applications must include at least one scientist with expertise from the basic science side of the spectrum as well as one from the clinical side. The multiple PD/PI model is strongly encouraged but not required. The goal is to facilitate the gathering of preliminary data to support future, larger research grant applications that will combine expertise and integrate basic, translational, and/or clinical approaches to understanding the developmental biology, genetics, and/or environmental basis of structural birth defects.
- R03 Due Dates: Feb. 16, Jun. 16, Oct. 16
PAR-20-065 Expiration Date January 08, 2023
Since the intent of this FOA is to foster collaborative efforts between basic and clinical scientists, the multiple PD/PI format is strongly encouraged but not required as a means to clearly demonstrate the intent to establish a successful collaboration that will carry over into the development of further grant applications. Applications must include at least one scientist with expertise from the basic science side of the spectrum as well as one from the clinical side. These two individuals must serve as Multiple PD(s)/PI(s) or one must serve as PD/PI with the other serving as Senior/Key Personnel.
The maximum project period is two years.
