  1. NIH MODULAR GRANT APPLICATIONS: MODIFICATIONS AND UPDATE (NOTICE: OD-00-046)
    This notice is of importance to those submitting modular grant applications, typically with budgets of $250,000 or less in direct costs. Since the original announcement by the National Institutes of Health in December 1998 of Modular Grant Applications, about 25,000 applications (R01, R03, R21, R15) have been submitted in the new modular format. As we now move to the full two-year phase of this new application format, there is a need to modify and clarify some of our original instructions and guidance to applicants and applicant institutions. This Notice addresses five issues regarding modular grant applications. The Notice describes: 1) a modification of the instructions for the budget narrative page to now include ALL personnel, 2) the consequences of submission of non-compliant modular applications, 3) an update on the peer review of modular applications, 4) clarification of the instructions for completing the Checklist, and 5) some general reminders for modular grant applications. We have received many questions/comments/concerns/inquiries to our e-mail address, modulargrants@nih.gov and many hits to our modular grant website, http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/modular/modular.htm

  2. ADDENDUM - CANCER EDUCATION AND CAREER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (PAR-00-064) (NOT-CA-00-022)
    This addendum is to inform potential applicants of a change in the level of support permitted under Other Expenses for a postdoctoral candidate/trainee, under Program Announcement (PA), PAR-00-064, CANCER EDUCATION AND CAREER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM. This change applies retroactively to all applications submitted to this Program Announcement. The new amount is up to $30,000 in direct costs per year per postdoctoral candidate/trainee, and can be provided for the following types of expenses: (a) research expenses, such as supplies, equipment, and technical personnel; (b) tuition, fees, and books related to career development; (c) travel to research meetings or training; and (d) statistical services including personnel and computer time. All other provisions of PAR-00-064 remain unchanged. The complete PA can be found at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-00-064.html

  3. SCOR: MOLECULAR MEDICINE AND ATHEROSCLEROSIS (HL-00-015) - NHLBI
    Letter of Intent Receipt Date: March 16, 2001; Application Receipt Date: June 15, 2001
    The objective of this initiative is to establish new or to continue to support closely interacting, multiproject Specialized Centers of Research (SCORs) to study the etiology and pathophysiology of atherosclerosis at the molecular level. The goals of this second cycle of the SCORs are to focus on studies on the pathobiology of the atherosclerotic lesion at the level of the arterial wall.
