New R01 Grant Submission Process
Effective February 2007, all NIH R01 grant applications must be submitted electronically via the Grants.gov website http://www.grants.gov/. Applicants must register with Grants.gov, download an application and submit it via the online interface. One benefit of this process is that applicants will be able to track the status of their application online.
This new application procedure affects R01 applications which are often referred to as “research grants.” Among the R01 grants issued by NLM are: Research Project Grants for Biomedical Informatics and Bioinformatics; Innovations in Biomedical Computational Science and Technology (BISTI) Grants; Understanding and Promoting Health Literacy Research Grants.
In May 2007, all Resource Program grants (G7, G8, G11, G13, and G20) will transition to the electronic submission process. Among the Resource Program Grants issued by NLM are: Knowledge Management & Applied Informatics Grants; Integrated Advanced Information Management Systems (IAIMS) Planning Grants and Grants for Scholarly Works in Biomedicine and Health.
