NIMHD Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant Program (R21 – Clinical Trial Optional)
National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD)
Application Due: June 16, 2020
While scientific and technological discoveries have improved the health of the U.S. population overall, many populations, including racial/ethnic minorities and other disadvantaged groups, continue to bear disproportionate burdens of disease and adverse health conditions. The purpose of this FOA is to encourage new exploratory or developmental research projects that have the potential to break new ground in the fields of minority health and health disparities or extend previous discoveries toward new directions or applications that can directly contribute to improving minority health or reducing health disparities. Long-term projects or projects designed to incrementally increase knowledge in a well-established area are not appropriate for this FOA.
Consistent with the exploratory and/or developmental nature of research projects envisioned under this FOA, applications are not expected to include and are strongly encouraged to not include preliminary data. Projects led by NIH-defined early-stage investigators (ESI) are particularly encouraged. Such projects should exhibit strong potential to position the ESIs to compete successfully for R01 funding in the near future. Investigators, whether established or early stage, who have supportive preliminary data are strongly encouraged to consider applying through a relevant R01 FOA instead of this FOA.
