If you plan an investigator-initiated clinical trial, you must go through NIAID's process for the following awards:
If you need support to get ready for the launch of an IICT, such as planning, designing, and preparing the documentation necessary for implementing an IICT, consider applying first for a Clinical Trial Planning Grant (R34). An R34 is not a prerequisite for either the R01 or U01.
* For NIAID's definition of risk, see How do I determine whether to apply for an R01 implementation grant or U01 implementation cooperative agreement?
You are strongly encouraged to request prior consultation from program staff before you apply.
In addition to the resources noted above, we have the following help for writing your application.
