Section I. Funding Opportunity Description 

CURRENT LANGUAGE:
Purpose
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) requests investigator-initiated Resource-Related Research Projects (R24) applications that may be critical to enhancing synergies among existing programs that address the specific mission of NIAID, as described above. Investigators are encouraged to visit the NIAID website for additional information about the research mission and high-priority research areas of the NIAID http://www.niaid.nih.gov/about/organization/Pages/default.aspx.

The purpose of the Resource-Related Research Projects (R24) grant is to support investigator-initiated research projects that will develop resources to serve biomedical research.  A resource is a non-hypothesis-driven activity to provide data, materials, tools, or services that are essential to making the most timely, high quality, and cost-efficient progress in a field. The resource should be available to any qualified investigator, and should be highly quality controlled, replenishable, and not duplicate resources available commercially or through other sources.
