The NCRR High-End Instrumentation Grant (HEI) program solicits applications from groups of NIH-supported investigators to purchase a single major item of equipment to be used for biomedical research that costs at least $750,000. The maximum award is $2,000,000. Instruments in this category include, but are not limited to, structural and functional imaging systems, macromolecular NMR spectrometers, high-resolution mass spectrometers, cryoelectron microscopes and supercomputers.
The NCRR intends to commit approximately $21 million in FY2006 to fund approximately 11-16 new awards.
The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend on the funds available for the HEI Program.
Awards are for one year and for direct costs only. Cost sharing is not required. Since the cost of the various instruments will vary, it is anticipated that the size of the award also will vary.
This Program Announcement will use the NIH S10 mechanism.
Eligible institutions include domestic non-profit organizations, public or private institutions, such as universities, colleges and hospitals. To be eligible to apply, three or more NIH funded investigators (Principal Investigators of active P01, R01, U01, R35, or R37 research grants) who will be users of the requested instruments must be identified.
Eligible principal investigators include any technically qualified research scientist.
There is no limit on the number of applications an institution may submit provided the applications are for different types of equipment.
See Section IV.1 for application materials.
