On November 17, the NIH issued the first set of funding opportunities associated with the implementation of the NIH Precision Medicine Initiative ® (PMI) Cohort Program. These included four (4) funding opportunity announcements for cooperative agreements, and two (2) funding opportunities for Other Transaction awards.
Together, the projects these funding opportunities support will build a solid infrastructure for the PMI Cohort Program. The cooperative agreements will support a coordinating center (RFA-PM-16-001), network of healthcare provider organizations (RFA-PM-16-002), participant mobile technologies (RFA-PM-16-003), and a biobank (RFA-PM-16-004). The Other Transaction awards will develop a pilot program to inform the creation of the direct volunteer enrollment component of the cohort (OT-PM-16-001), and develop a communication infrastructure that will be vital to conveying the importance of this research effort (OT-PM-16-002).
