Academic Research Enhancement Award in Diseases within the Mission of NIDDK (R15 – Clinical Trial Required)

Funder: National Institutes of Health

Due Date: 1/7/2021

Budget: Negotiable

Opportunity: PA-18-495

The purpose of the Academic Research Enhancement Award (AREA) program is to stimulate research in educational institutions that provide baccalaureate or advanced degrees for a significant number of the Nation’s research scientists, but that have not been major recipients of NIH support. AREA grants create opportunities for scientists and institutions otherwise unlikely to participate extensively in NIH research programs to contribute to the Nation’s biomedical and behavioral research effort. AREA grants are intended to support small-scale research projects proposed by faculty members of eligible, domestic institutions, to expose undergraduate and/or graduate students to meritorious research projects, and to strengthen the research environment of the applicant institution. The purpose of this FOA is to support AREA grants for clinical trials focused on diseases within the mission of NIDDK.
