Dear IDeA investigators,
Please be aware that the request for nominations to the FY2018 IDeA Co-funding Initiative has been issued internally to NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs).
The IDeA Co-funding Initiative invites R01 and R15 submissions from NIH ICs. The applications must be investigator-initiated and from institutions in IDeA-eligible states that were deemed meritorious in initial peer review, but are beyond the IC’s payline. The NIH ICs that have the primary assignment for the applications determine which of the applications they will nominate and send to NIGMS for consideration.
Investigators that are interested in their applications being considered for IDeA Co-funding should talk with the application’s Program Officer (PO) about their interest in this program. The deadline for nominations this year is COB April 6, 2018.
I serve as the NIGMS/IDeA point of contact for this initiative is and can be reached by phone (301-451-6416) or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions about the program, so please contact me if you need more information. In addition, if your PO has questions about the program, please let them know that I am happy to answer their questions as well.
