NIH uncolicited applications
Did you know that the majority of funded NIH proposals are unsolicited? That is, they are not in response to a specific funding opportunity announcement!
grants-contracts/unsolicited- investigator-initiated- research although this guidance is specific to NIAID (allergy and infectious disease), the same applies to almost all of NIH – especially NCI – the wealthiest of all at NIH.
Please see the attached presentation from Program Officer, Dr. David Berrigan at NCI. Last week at meetings at UTK, he took us through the top 10 list of research gems from the Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences. These are applicable to anywhere at NIH, not just NCI.
