Innovative Grants Program

Nina Ireland Program for Lung Health: Call for Innovative Grant Applications
The NIPLH is seeking proposals for innovative research in pulmonary medicine. Proposals likely to have the most impact will be funded at up to $50k per year for 1–2 years. In addition to high quality of science and innovative approaches, other key components of impact include projects likely to lead to extramural funding for which there is no alternative source of seed funding available. The 2020 Request for Application (RFA) will consider any topic in Pulmonary medicine, however projects related to the underserved and health disparities, locally and globally, will merit special consideration. View attached form for details, applicant requirements and instructions. Deadline: Tuesday, November 12, 2019.
