Funder: National Institutes of Health
Due Date: September 13, 2019
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) supports applications to develop and implement phase II and beyond investigator-initiated single-site clinical trials. Applications submitted in response to this FOA must be relevant to the research mission of the NHLBI and meet the NIH definition of a clinical trial (see NOT-OD-15-015). For additional information about the mission, strategic vision, and research priorities of the NHLBI, applicants are encouraged to consult the NHLBI website: http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov.
This FOA will utilize a bi-phasic, milestone-driven mechanism of award. It is anticipated that applications will present the scientific rationale for the clinical trial and a comprehensive scientific and operational plan that describes the conduct of the trial, as well as plans for project management, subject recruitment and retention, performance milestones, scientific conduct of the trial, and dissemination of results.
The multiple PD/PI model is strongly encouraged but not required. Applicants are encouraged to include a PD/PI with expertise in biostatistics, clinical trial design, and coordination.
Due to the complex nature of conducting a clinical trial, applicants are strongly encouraged to contact the appropriate Scientific/Research contact prior to application submission. Staff will be able to assist applicants in meeting the objectives of this FOA.
