NIH Offers Small Grants Program

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Researchers seeking small amounts of support for relatively short periods to fund short, well-defined studies that can be completed quickly, may apply to the National Institutes of Health for the Investigator Initiatives Small Grants program.

These grants, funded through the National Human Genome Research Institute and ten other NIH institutes, will give up to $100,000 over two years, with no more than $50,000 per year, to scientists involved in a variety of studies that fall under the time and funding limits.

The researchers could apply for financial support for pilot or feasibility studies; secondary analysis of existing data; small, self-contained research projects; development of research methodology; and development of new research technology.
