Apply for NIH Director’s Pioneer and New Innovator Awards

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is accepting applications for the 2008 NIH Director’s Pioneer and New Innovator Awards.  The awards provide support to scientists who take an exceptionally creative, innovative approach to major challenges in biomedical or behavioral research.  They are part of the NIH Roadmap for Medical Research and complement other NIH programs that fund innovative research by scientists in the early stages of their research careers. 

Pioneer awards, which are open to scientists at any career stage, provide $2.5 million in direct costs over a period of five years.  New Innovator Awards, which are awarded to new investigators who have not previously received an NIH regular research (R01) or similar grant, provide $1.5 million in direct costs over five years.  For more information on these programs please visit and
