NIH Limited Submission Funding Opportunities

NIH Limited Submission Funding Opportunities

General guidelines:
Pre-proposals should be sent to Susan Meyn in the Office of Research on or before the indicated internal deadline (typically two weeks prior to the Letter of Intent receipt date or as announced in MyVUMC). In general, pre-proposals should include the following:

  • Faculty PI/PD(s)
  • Tentative title of the intended proposal
  • Names of other key faculty, departments expected to participate
  • A brief (1 page maximum) summary of the scope and content of the program.

Additional information may be requested. If necessary, an internal review will be conducted to select the institutional applicant(s) for limited submission programs.
Please review program details, and contact Meyn for more information at s.meyn@vanderbilt.edu or 322-0470.

Centers for Agricultural Disease and Injury Research, Education, and Prevention (U54)
Vanderbilt is limited to one application for submission.
Vanderbilt pre-proposal internal deadline: Dec.14
Letter of intent receipt date: Jan. 4, 2011
Application submission due date: Feb. 4, 2011

Summary:

NIOSH is encouraging applications for centers that will conduct high quality research and help translate scientific discoveries into practical applications to improve worker safety and health.

Ag Centers are expected to have a high caliber of scientific and technical competency, be forward looking, and provide regional leadership in the development and delivery of relevant interventions to improve Ag health and safety. Center structure should take advantage of diverse scientific resources and focus on local, regional and national issues. Center functions should include developing holistic approaches that link prevention, intervention, translation, outreach, education, and evaluation.

The implementation of innovative, evidence-based solutions that address important agricultural safety and health problems in a collaborative manner is expected.

Superfund Hazardous Substance Research and Training Program (P42)
Vanderbilt is limited to one application submission.
Vanderbilt pre-proposal internal deadline: March 2, 2011
Letter of intent receipt date: March 16, 2011
Application submission due date: April 15, 2011

Summary:
NIEHS is announcing the continuation of the Superfund Hazardous Substance Research and Training Program. SRP Center grants will support problem-based, solution-oriented research Centers that consist of multiple, integrated projects representing both the biomedical and non-biomedical disciplines; as well as cores tasked with administrative, community engagement, research translation, research support, and training functions.

The scope of the SRP Centers includes: (1) advanced techniques for the detection, assessment, and evaluation of the effect on human health of hazardous substances; (2) methods to assess the risks to human health presented by hazardous substances; (3) methods and technologies to detect hazardous substances in the environment; and (4) basic biological, chemical, and physical methods to reduce the amount and toxicity of hazardous substances.

NIH will not accept any application in response to this FOA that is essentially the same as one already reviewed, or as one currently pending initial peer review unless the applicant withdraws the pending application. Resubmission applications may be submitted.
