Subject: NIH High-End Instrumentation Grant Program (S10)
Notice of intent to apply are due at the Graduate School on Monday, August 26.
This program encourages applications from groups of NIH-supported investigators to purchase a single item of equipment to be used for biomedical research that costs at least $750,000. The maximum award is $2 million. Examples of High-End Instruments include, but are not limited to: Biomedical Imagers, Ultrahigh-Field Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrometers, Mass Spectrometers, Electron Microscopes, and Supercomputers. A major user group of three or more investigators who are PDs/PIs on active NIH research grants with the following activitiy codes (P01, R01, U01, R35, R37, DP1 and DP2) must be identified. Once this eligibility requirement has been met, additional users with other types of active NIH research grants can be added as major or minor users. To demonstrate the clear need for the requested instrumentation, projects supported by NIH research grants should require at least 75% of the total usage time.
Multiple applications from UW-Madison for similar instruments require official administrative assurance that such requests are a coordinated institutional effort and not unintended duplication. For this reason, a Graduate School review of the equipment requested is required. This is not an internal competition.
This contains additional information on the program and specific application instructions, etc.
