Additional Information on Eligibility

- The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) invites applications from single institutions and consortia of institutions to participate in the Asthma and Allergic Diseases Cooperative Research Centers (AADCRC) program. The purpose of this RFA is to support basic and clinical research on the immunological basis, pathobiology, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of asthma and allergic diseases and to accelerate the application of fundamental knowledge of immune function to the investigation, prevention, and treatment of asthma and allergic diseases. - In FY 2006, NIAID anticipates awarding a total of $11 million to support the Centers. Additional discretionary funds of $1 million per year will be provided to support new projects on emerging opportunities. - Seven to ten new awards are anticipated. - This initiative will be funded using the multi-project Cooperative Agreement (U19) award mechanism. - A minimum of two research projects must be proposed. At least one of the projects must focus on immunologic aspects of asthma and/or allergic diseases in humans, and must be qualified as clinical research as defined in NIH grant guidance and policy (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/policy/hs/index.htm). - An institution may submit only one application; however, applications may include investigators from more than one institution if such arrangements enhance the scientific strength of the proposed research program. In addition, a Principal Investigator may serve as a Project Leader in a multi-project application if there is no scientific overlap with the application submitted by the Principal Investigator. - Eligible organizations include: domestic for-profit and non-profit organizations; public and private institutions, such as universities, colleges, hospitals, laboratories, units of State and local governments, and eligible agencies of the Federal government. Foreign institutions are not eligible to apply as the primary applicant but may enter into a consortium with a domestic institution serving as the primary applicant. - Eligible Principal Investigators include all individuals with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research. Racial/ethnic minority individuals, women, and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply as Principal Investigators. - The PHS 398 document is available at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/phs398/phs398.html.
