The purpose of this RFP is to encourage collaboration among investigators and the ATN by providing funding support for scientifically meritorious research projects that address the research objectives of the ATN in order to augment the research areas of the ATN’s U19 Program projects already in progress. This funding opportunity is open to all investigators outside of ATN Principal Investigators whom are currently funded, with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research, whether or not they are currently affiliated with the ATN. Junior-level investigators paired with appropriate senior mentors are encouraged to apply to this RFP.
Up to six awards for two to five years are anticipated. Application budgets are not limited but need to reflect the actual needs of the proposed project. However, if the annual budget is expected to exceed $500,000 in total costs (inclusive of indirect costs) consultation with the ATN and NICHD will be needed.
