The goal of this Request for Information (RFI) is to solicit comments and experiences to guide the development and implementation of the NHLBI R35 Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) renewal.
BackgroundIn December 2015, the NHLBI released the “Emerging Investigator Award (EIA)” and “Outstanding Investigator Award (OIA)” R35 programs. The purpose of the programs is to promote scientific productivity and innovation by providing long-term support and increased flexibility to experienced Program Directors /Principal Investigators (PDs/PIs) who are currently PDs/PIs on at least two NHLBI R01-equivalent awards and whose outstanding record of research demonstrate their ability to make major contributions to heart, lung, blood and sleep (HLBS) research. The NHLBI R35s support research programs, rather than research projects. The R35 funding is the primary and in most cases sole source of NHLBI funding, and support the HLBS research for up to seven years with increased flexibility to conduct ground breaking research, extend previous discoveries in new directions, and allow PDs/PIs to take greater risks and pursue research that requires a longer timeframe.
Information RequestedThe NHLBI is interested in the following information to guide the R35 FOAs renewal:
