Transformative Research Award Program

NIH welcomes proposals for the NIH Director's Transformative Research Awards (R01). The awards provide support for individual scientists or collaborative investigative teams who propose exceptionally innovative, original, and/or unconventional research, which, if successful, would have a major impact in a broad area of biomedical or behavioral research. To be considered transformative, projects must have the potential to create or overturn fundamental scientific paradigms through the use of novel approaches, or lead to major improvements in health through the development of highly innovative therapies, diagnostic tools or preventive strategies.

The NIH Common Fund intends to commit $25 million in FY 2012 for this initiative. Up to one-third of this budget will be reserved for projects exceeding $1 million dollars in direct costs per year.  Letters of intent are due by December 12, 2011; applications are due by January 12, 2012:
