National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) announces the 
inactivation of its Small Grants (R03) Program effective immediately.  
Specifically, the Institute will not accept, review, or fund R03 applications 
for the November 1, 2001 receipt date and beyond.  However, small research 
grant applications that were submitted on or prior to the July 1, 2001, 
deadline will still be reviewed for possible funding. 

The NHLBI Small Grants Program was intended to provide limited support in time 
and amount for research projects designed to analyze preexisting research data 
generated by clinical trials, population research, and demonstration and 
education grants.

Research investigators interested in obtaining funds for data analysis that 
heretofore would have been supported through the R03 mechanism are encouraged 
to contact the Institute to discuss currently available options, among which 
is the NHLBI Innovative Research Grant Program, described at
