For all mechanisms of support, the award and use of funds is subject to applicable provisions of basic statutory authorities, appropriation acts, applicable regulations and operational policies of the Department of Health and Human Services, the Public Health Service, the National Institutes of Health and the National Library of Medicine. RESEARCH GRANT PROGRAMS: Research Grants support scientific investigation into issues of biomedical informatics and bioinformatics, with a focus on the organization, processing, representation, and utilization of knowledge. The scope of NLM's research interests includes, but is not limited to: knowledge representation, data mining, natural language processing, feature recognition, process modeling, visualization and other applications of computer sciences to problems of medicine and biology. All Research grants provide support for direct costs and for facilities and administration costs at the institution's negotiated rate. Basic research grants provide up to $500,000 per year for up to 4 years. Exploratory/Developmental Research grants provide up to $275,000 in a 2-year period for feasibility testing. Small Research Project grants provide up to $50,00 per year for one or two years for preliminary research studies. Support may be requested for allowable direct costs of such projects as specified under National Institutes of Health and National Library of Medicine program guidelines and accompanying policies and regulations for research grants for costs, including equipment, supplies, personnel, and travel, as justified by the nature and scope of the project.vel, as justified by the nature and scope of the project. Institutional Training Grants and Fellowships promote the research career training of talented persons who seek academic careers in medical informatics research and applied informatics. Availability of Institutional Training Grants is announced occasionally. Institutional Training support may be at the pre- or post-doctoral level and may be awarded to academic health scientists well qualified to conduct the proposed training activities. Training sites are expected to have well established computer facilities, strong research and education programs, experienced faculty and staff committed to health computer science research, and available courses or experience in computer science, information science, and cognitive sciences. Institutional grants provide trainee stipends, tuition and fees, travel, and certain institutional support costs. Individual fellowships for Research Career Training in Medical Informatics and Applied Informatics are at the pre - and post-doctoral level. Fellowships for training in the Application of Informatics are also available, with salary replacement stipends up to $58,000 per annum. SBIR Phase I grants (of approximately 6-months' duration) are to establish the technical merit and feasibility of a proposed research effort that may lead to a commercial product or process. Phase II grants are for the continuation of the research initiated in Phase I and that are likely to result in commercial products or processes. Only Phase I awardees are eligible to receive Phase II support. STTR Phase I grants (normally of 1-year duration) are to determine the scientific, technical, and commercial merit and feasibility of the proposed cooperative effort that has potential for commercial application. Phase II funding is based on results of research initiated in Phase I and scientific and technical merit and commercial potential on Phase II application.
