NIH AREA eligibilities, clarified

June 17, 2009

OK, here are the facts. They are complicated. Please hang on.

For the June submission of traditional AREA, ONLY THE SCHOOL OF NURSING FACULTY ARE ELIGIBLE

For the September submission of the Stimulus AREA, ALL FACULTY FROM ALL SCHOOLS (as long as they are doing health-related research) ARE ELIGIBLE

For the October submission of the traditional AREA, all bets are off.  There are indications that all faculty will be eligible, but we must wait until the guidelines are released.

So we can plan, please answer the polls below.

AREA R us Workshop for AREA awards June 4

April 21, 2009

Thursday June 4 3:30 – 5 PM in the Collaboratory, Burk Hall Room 229  Leti Marquez-Magana and Laura Burrus from COSE will talk about their AREA awards.       

In case you haven’t see it (just came out today) an RFA is now out for the NIH AREA award. This is a special mechanism for universities that don’t normally compete well for NIH R01s – our faculty are eligible, and COSE faculty are newly eligible under this RFA ! Deadline for proposals 9/24/09.   http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-OD-09-007.html

Note that
– the “S” mechanism is excluded from the eligibility criterion (this is VERY good), so SCORE grants don’t count against eligibility ceiling

– because this is Stimulus (ARRA)-related, there is a one-time deadline, no resubs, and NO renewals (normally the AREA awards are renewable) (this is not so good)
– the total award amount (direct costs up to 3 years) has been increased to $300K (this is good)
only 50 will be awarded (not so good)
 – Money will be apportioned to the NIH Institutes and Centers (I/Cs) which means that the usual Institute suspects will get the most awards to hand out (ie, NCI, NHLBI and the like)
