NIH encourages applications for the NIH Director’s New Innovator Award Program.

This announcement is an NIH Roadmap Initiative. The NIH Roadmap is an innovative approach to accelerate fundamental discovery and translate that knowledge into effective prevention strategies and new treatments.

The award is designed to support new exceptionally creative investigators who propose bold and highly innovative research approaches that have the potential to produce a major impact on biomedical and behavioral research. Proposed research for these awards may be in any scientific area relevant to the NIH mission but need not be in a conventional biomedical or behavioral discipline. The focus is on innovation and potential impact.
