Institutional Training and Director Program Projects
NIH Director’s Pathfinder Award - Multi-Yr Funding
To support multi-year funded research with unique, high impact ideas for addressing biomedical research including assuring a balanced and effective workforce. This research grant program will encourage exceptionally creative scientists to develop potentially transforming approaches for supported research. The proposed research must reflect ideas that are substantially different from those already being pursued or they must apply existing research designs in new and innovative ways. This is a multi-year, funded companion activity code to the existing Pioneer Award (DP1); thus ICs need OER prior approval to use the DP4.
