NIH Seeks Proposals for 2009 Director's Pioneer and New Innovator Awards

NIH welcomes proposals for 2009 NIH Director's Pioneer Awards and New Innovator Awards. Both programs are part of the NIH Roadmap for Medical Research and support exceptionally creative scientists who take highly innovative, potentially high-impact approaches to major challenges in biomedical or behavioral research.

The Pioneer Award competition begins with a proposal submission period from November 17 to December 17, 2008. See http://nihroadmap.nih.gov/pioneer for more information.

The New Innovator Award competition begins with a proposal submission period from December 15, 2008 to January 15, 2009. See http://nihroadmap.nih.gov/newinnovator for more information.

The NIH’s new Transformative R01 Program (T-R01s) will allow highly creative, “out-of-the-box” projects to be supported. The T-R01 Program represents a High Risk/High Reward Demonstration Project in which novel approaches to peer review and program management are to be piloted. The application submission period is from December 29, 2008 to January 29, 2009. See http://nihroadmap.nih.gov/T-R01/ for more information.
