NIAID Investigator Initiated Program Project Applications (P01)

Grant Amount: Unspecified.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites Program Project applications (P01) that address the mission of NIAID as outlined in the Background section of this FOA. Investigators are encouraged to visit the NIAID website ( for additional information about the research mission and high-priority research areas of the NIAID. The proposed programs may address scientific areas relevant to the NIAID mission including the biology, pathogenesis, and host response to microbes, including HIV; the mechanisms of normal immune function and immune dysfunction resulting in autoimmunity, immunodeficiency, allergy, asthma, and transplant rejection; and translational research to develop vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics to prevent and treat infectious, immune-mediated, and allergic diseases.

The purpose of Program Project (P01) grants is to support integrated, multi-project research programs that have a well-defined, central research focus or objective. The P01 is a confederation of interrelated research projects, each capable of standing on its own scientific merit but complementing one another. The P01 application must include a minimum of two individual research projects that contribute to the program objective. Each individual research project should reflect a distinct, separate, scientifically meritorious research effort led by an independent investigator, the Project Leader. In addition, the individual projects should be clearly interrelated and synergistic so that the research ideas, efforts, and outcomes of the program as a whole will offer a distinct advantage over pursuing the individual projects separately.

In addition to individual research projects, applicants may propose one or more shared cores if needed for the proposed research. Each shared resource core must be utilized by two or more projects within the program. Both administrative and scientific cores are allowed. For renewals and resubmissions, new cores may be proposed and/or existing cores may be augmented to support the proposed research.
