Purpose

The purpose of this Notice is to correct the description of the anticipated terms of award in Section VI. Award Administration Information, Subsection 1. Award Notices, related to the renegotiation of current NINDS awards.

Investigators who receive a Research Program Award (RPA) will be required to relinquish their other NINDS funding. In the case of multiple-PD/PI awards, they will relinquish their formal involvement in the award but will be able to continue the collaboration with support from the RPA. This transition may be made at the end of the current budget period. A similar process will be followed for subprojects of P01s and P50s. Investigators supported by an RPA are expected to continue as associated investigators of the continuing P01 or P50 and thus be expected to interact with the other subproject investigators and to have access to the P01 or P50 cores.
