SUMMARY

There are opportunities for research in EM at the NIH, which may be appropriate for a variety of Institutes, depending on the topic area. Most NIH-funded research is through investigator-initiated grant applications, and the PHS 398 application packet is a source of more information. RFAs and RFPs, which have set-aside funding, are released for specific topic areas when an Institute identifies an area requiring multiple studies or multicenter research. PAs, which do not have set-aside funding, announce areas of interest for an Institute. The NIH Guide to Grants and Contracts announces RFAs, RFPs, and PAs. It is important to become expert in a field of research to be successful in achieving research funding, whether investigator- or institute-initiated.
