Step 1 – Discuss the potential request informally with the project officer. Email email@example.com to discuss your preliminary data and the suitability of your proposed studies for support. Your request will be evaluated as follows:
Informal requests are reviewed and approved at the branch/office level, where they are considered in relation to branch/office priorities.
Step 2 – Submit a formal proposal (by invitation only). If your proposal is judged to be promising, the program officer will invite you to submit a formal request for approval through the DMID Preclinical Services for Researchers site. The program officer will provide instructions for establishing the NIH account required to access this site, instructions for submitting your request and a brief description of what to expect next.
Formal requests are reviewed and approved by the DMID senior leadership, where they are considered in relation to division priorities.
