NIH-targeted Funding Opportunities Initiative
The new National Institutes for Health (NIH) Centers Program, spearheaded by the
Executive Vice President for Research and Partnerships (EVPRP) and Office of the
Provost, is intended to increase the submission and success rates of new center applications in order to increase Purdue’s NIH funding portfolio. An influx of funds in the
early stages of a planned center proposal or resubmission could provide an opportunity
to integrate projects and acquire strong preliminary data, increasing the probability of
Tenure-track, tenured and research faculty on the West Lafayette campus who plan
to apply for a new P30 or other Center Awards are eligible to apply for this program.
Requests are limited to $50,000 and below.
Funds are available within 24 months of a planned submission of a new NIH Center
application or shortly after reviews are received for a planned resubmission. Principal
Investigators should work with their pre-award centers to prepare applications, which
must be submitted through the pre-award centers to nihnewR01program@purdue.edu.
Rolling deadlines apply to this program. For more information, see www.purdue.edu/
