By National Institutes of Health
Government Grant





The Office of Research Infrastructure Programs (ORIP) within the Division of Program Coordination, Planning, and Strategic Initiatives announces an opportunity to apply for small grant support for ORIP-supported Special Emphasis Research Career Award (SERCA) K01 recipients who have completed the first two years (24 months) of the SERCA K01 award. ORIP seeks to enhance the ability of ORIP SERCA K01 awardees to conduct research as they transition to fully independent investigator status. The R03 mechanism supports projects including pilot and feasibility studies; secondary analysis of existing data; small, self-contained research projects; development of research methodology; and development of new research technology. The R03 is intended to support research projects that can realistically be completed in two years and that require limited levels of funding. This Funding Opportunity Announcement does not accept applications proposing clinical trial(s). Grant
