NIH published this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) in a September 9, 2022 Guide announcement.
Updated May 28, 2021. NIH posted the “When should I reach out to NIAID staff if I am considering submitting a P01 application?” shown below.
Consultation with a NIAID Scientific/Research Contact listed in Section VII of the FOA is strongly encouraged at least 15 weeks before submission of any P01 application. NIAID staff will then consider whether the proposed program project meets the goals and mission of the Institute and whether it addresses one or more high priority research areas.
If the application will request $500,000 or more for direct costs in any year, applicants must contact the Scientific/Research Contact and obtain approval from NIAID at least six weeks before application submission. This requirement applies even if none of the individual projects requests $500,000 or more. Refer to the NIAID Big Grants SOP.
