Alzheimer's-focused administrative supplements for NIH grants that are not focused on Alzheimer's disease
Twenty-four NIH components invite applications to Alzheimer's-focused administrative supplements for NIH grants that are not focused on Alzheimer's disease. These supplements will expand existing awards that are not currently focused on Alzheimer’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease related dementias (ADRD), to allow them to develop a focus on ADRD. Active awards with project end dates in FY 2020 or later are eligible. The award may not be in terminal no cost extension or going into no cost extension in FY2019.
As administrative supplements, the work proposed needs to be within the scope of the research or training that is already supported. Center awards and resource awards are most likely to be able to justify these supplements as they tend to have a broad content scope. Some research grants will also qualify if the current research is on a related topic (such as cognitive decline in aging; caregiving; the biology of neurodegeneration; genetics; imaging; computational methods; pain perception; or biostatistical tools that have application to research on Alzheimer’s and its related dementias).
As part of the application, investigators should submit an abstract of the proposed research that shows the relevance to ADRD. The work may include pilot projects or resource development. In preparing the submission, indicate that it is a response to NOT-AG-18-039 in Field 4.b on the SF 424 form.
- Investigators should submit applications as responses to the parent active administrative supplement PA: https://grants.nih.gov/
- Electronic submissions are strongly preferred for this funding opportunity. Use one of the methods described in PA-18-591. Electronic submissions allow expedited administration and review of the applications. They allow tracking of applications received and simple movement of applications between Institutes - a requirement for this initiative. The ASSIST system allows most complex awards to submit supplement requests electronically.
- Individual requests cannot be more than $250,000 in direct costs, exclusive of Facilities and Administrative costs on sub-contracts. Though supplement requests are not limited to one per award, we will consider substantial additional funding to an award as beyond the scope of the funded award.
RECEIPT DEADLINE: Requests must be received by February 26, 5:00 p.m. local time of the applicant organization for funding in FY 2019.
