The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) has released a solicitation for
Biotechnology Resource Grants (P41). NIBIB intends for the NCBIBs to accelerate the development and
dissemination of new biomedical technology. This solicitation continues NIBIB’s long-standing P41
biotechnology resource grant program, but has been renamed to reflect this program’s status as a
signature NIBIB award.
The central components of each Center are the Technology Research and Development (TR&D) projects.
Serving as the foundation of all activities within the Center, TR&D projects should be at the cutting edge
and working to develop new technology in response to the emerging needs of the biomedical research
community. Additionally, a Center should engage in Collaborative Projects (CPs) that serve as
technology drivers, users, and testbeds for the cutting-edge technology developed in TR&D projects and
Service Projects (SPs) that serve as users of the well-developed and stable technologies of the Center.
The TR&D, CPs, and SPs will all function synergistically to fully develop new technologies, their uses, and
provide training and dissemination with the goal exporting developments into the broader community
to achieve a wide impact on biomedical research. Centers will be expected to have the ability to apply
developed technologies to a broad range of basic, translational, and/or clinical research.
Award Information: While the solicitation does not specify the number of awards granted, proposal
budgets range between $600,000 and $750,000. In addition, up to $500,000 can be requested for
special-purpose equipment for the duration of a five-year project period. Support for the award may be
requested for up to five years. Applicants may submit a Renewal application. However, NCBIB Awards
will be restricted to a total of fifteen years.
Full applications are due on May 25, September 25, and January 25 annually.
