NIH welcomes proposals for 2012 NIH Director’s Pioneer Awards for innovative approaches to major challenges in biomedical or behavioral research.
NIH expects to make at least 7 Pioneer Awards in summer 2012. To continue its strong record of diversity in these programs, NIH especially encourages women and members of groups that are underrepresented in NIH research to apply.
- Up to $2.5 million in direct costs over 5 years
- Open to scientists at any career stage.
The deadline for submitting Pioneer Award applications is October 7, 2011.
