NIH Instrumental Development for Biomedical Applications (R21)

The National Center for Research Resources solicits innovative proposals focused on the development of new or improved instrumentation. Development of methodologies and software may be included to the extent that they advance instrument development.

Projects should propose tools that can be used by a wide range of biomedical or clinical researchers.  Projects that are focused on a specific organ or disease will be considered nonresponsive and withdrawn without review; however, a specific organ or disease may be used as a model system to evaluate the new instrumentation.

Application deadline: October 11, 2011
