This addendum is to add the National Institute for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) as a participating institute on program announcement PA-06-512, which was released in the NIH guide for grants and contracts on August 7, 2006 at

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 K08) 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 $105,000.
