NIH Director’s Transformative Research Awards
Date: September 24, 2011
Bold, exceptionally innovative science tends to be risky, typically not faring as well in traditional NIH review. Investigators with this type of research are invited to apply for the NIH Director’s Transformative Research Awards. Applicants are asked to focus their research strategy on the potential to produce a major impact in the broad area of biomedical or behavioral research. Little or no preliminary data is expected. The application deadline is January 12, 2012. For more information, visit the website, see the 2012 Frequently Asked Questions, or e-mail your questions to Transformative_Awards@mail.nih.gov.
