  • Emerging Global Leader Award (K43)

    The Emerging Global Leader Award aims to provide research support and protected time to a research scientist from a low- or middle- income country (LMIC) with a junior faculty position at an LMIC academic or research institution. This intensive, mentored research career development experience is expected to lead to an independently funded research career. This Funding Opportunity Announcement invites applications from LMIC scientists from any health related discipline that propose career development activities and a research project that is relevant to the health priorities of their country.


    Applications Receipt Dates

  • Notice of Information: Parallel Funding Initiative for Collaborative Research Between Investigators in the USA and in the State of São Paulo, Brazil (R01)

    The NIH and the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), Brazil, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to encourage collaborative international research between investigators in the US and in the State of São Paulo. The two funding agencies intend to jointly support (parallel funding) successful R01 applications to the NIH that fall within research areas of mutual interest, including single disciplinary and cross-disciplinary approaches and topics. The areas of interest include the mission areas of the participating NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs), named above. Descriptions of their areas of interest can be found on the website links provided in the Notice. Any application falling outside these areas will undergo the standard review process at NIH but will not be eligible for parallel funding. Inquiries about the suitability of proposed projects for each IC can be directed to the Point of Contact at each participating IC, as listed below. Only applications to the NIH parent R01 (PA-13-302 and subsequent reissuances) will be considered for this opportunity at this time.


    Participating Institutes: NINDS, FIC, NCI, NEI, NHGRI, NIA, NIAAA, NIAID, NIAMS, NIBIB, NICHD, NIDCD, NIDCR, NIDDK, NIDA, NIEHS, NIGMS, NIMH, NINR, NIMHD, NLM, NCCIH
