The notice of special interest Primary Caregiver Technical Assistance Supplements (PCTAS) (Admin Supp, Clinical Trial Optional) supports postdoctoral research scientists who are taking care of a child or sick family member by providing additional funds for NIAID grantees to hire a mid-to-senior level technician to fill in when the caregiver needs to be away from the lab.

The award’s principal investigator (PI) applies for the supplement. Thus, researchers who need technical support should discuss the situation with their PI. Find further instruction at Primary Caregiver Technical Assistance Supplements. See also NIH Family Friendly Initiatives FAQs.
