The NIDCD Small Grant Program (R03) is a long standing program. NIDCD intends to re-issue PAR-10-055 and continue this program.  The NIDCD Small Grant Program (R03) is intended to support the basic and clinical research of scientists who are beginning to establish an independent research career. This program cannot be used for thesis or dissertation research. The research must be focused on one or more of the areas within the biomedical and behavioral scientific mission of the NIDCD:  hearing, balance/vestibular, smell, taste, voice, speech, or language. The NIDCD R03 grant mechanism supports different types of projects including secondary analysis of existing data; small, self-contained research projects; development of research methodology; and development of new research technology. Irrespective of the type of project, the intent of the NIDCD R03 is for the PD/PI to obtain sufficient preliminary data for a subsequent R01.

This Notice is being provided to allow potential applicants sufficient time to develop meaningful collaborations and responsive projects. 

The Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is expected to be published in late fall 2012 or early winter with an expected receipt date in winter 2013.
