Donor Name: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
State: All States

Type of Grant: Grant
Grant Duration: 5 years
The proposed resource must provide a significant benefit to currently funded high priority projects in need of further coordination and support in the areas specified. Under rare circumstances, this mechanism may be used to support development of a new resource to the broader scientific community of the NIAID. It is anticipated that the request for resource support through the R24 activity code will occur on an infrequent basis and only in circumstances where other mechanisms of support from the NIAID are not appropriate.
The proposed resources should be relevant to the scientific areas of 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 the Resource-Related Research Projects (R24) grant is to support investigator-initiated research projects that will develop resources to serve biomedical research. A resource is a non-hypothesis-driven activity to provide data, materials, tools, or services that are essential to making the most timely, high quality, and cost-efficient progress in a field. The resource should be available to any qualified investigator, and should be highly quality controlled, replenishable, and not duplicate resources available commercially or through other sources.
