RELEASE DATE:  April 28, 2003

NOTICE:  NOT-EB-03-006

National Institute for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB)
 (http://www.nibib.nih.gov/)

This addendum is to add the National Institute for Biomedical Imaging 
and Bioengineering (NIBIB) as a participating institute on program 
announcement PA-00-020, which was released in the NIH guide for grants 
and contracts on December 2, 1999 at 
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-00-020.html.

The mission of the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and 
Bioengineering (NIBIB) is to improve health by supporting and 
conducting interdisciplinary research and training in biomedical 
imaging and bioengineering.  This is achieved through supporting the 
development and translation of emerging technologies that enable 
fundamental biomedical discoveries and facilitate early disease 
detection and management.  More specifically, the NIBIB plans, conducts 
and supports an integrated and coordinated program of research and 
research training that can be applied to an individual or to a broad 
spectrum of biological processes, disorders, and diseases and across 
organ systems.  The research promoted and supported by NIBIB is 
strongly synergistic with the other NIH Institutes and Centers as well 
as across government agencies, and has the potential for direct 
positive medical application. Ultimately, NIBIB seeks to translate 
research findings from the laboratory into practical solutions that 
will benefit the public health.

Salary limits on career awards (such as the K02) are not uniform 
throughout the NIH and are determined independently by each component 
of the NIH.  Currently, the NIBIB allows a maximum requested salary of 
$90,000.  

In addition, the K02 requires that the candidate must have independent, 
peer-reviewed research support at the time the K02 award is made.
