Updated: July 26, 2011
Based on the unanimous recommendation of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Advisory Council at its June 15, 2011 meeting, the NHLBI is no longer making new awards using the Method to Extend Research in Time (MERIT) Award (R37) funding mechanism.
NHLBI has announced the suspension of its MERIT Award program in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts (NOT-HL-11-153).
The Institute will maintain its commitment to existing R37 awardees. All active awards and requests for extensions will be processed in the usual manner.
