The National Institutes of Health (NIH) invite applications for the 2007 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.  All NIH institutes and centers participate in Roadmap Initiatives.

The purpose of the new innovator award program is to stimulate highly innovative research and support promising new investigators.  New investigators may have exceptionally innovative research ideas, but not the required preliminary data to fare well in the traditional peer review system.  As part of its commitment to increase the success of new investigators, NIH created the new innovator awards.  These awards support exceptionally creative new innovators who propose highly innovative approaches that have the potential to produce an unusually high impact.


For more information, potential applicants should contact Dr. Judith H. Greenberg, Director, Division of Genetics and Developmental Biology, NIGMS; telephone:  301-594-4469; e-mail:  For a more detailed description of this announcement, visit  For more information on the NIH Roadmap, visit
