Funds available – May, December

Overview and Purpose

The Executive Vice President for Research and Partnerships (EVPRP) and Office of the Provost’s New NIH R01/U01/P01 Program is intended to increase the submission and success rates of new R01/U01/P01 applications from established investigators.

The long term goal is to increase Purdue’s NIH funding portfolio. Historically, R01 awards have been the most valuable of NIH research project grants, whereas U01/P01 awards support similar investigator-initiated research in different contexts. This program is intended to increase R01/U01/P01 awards by enabling the success of New Projects developed by faculty with a consistent record of external research funding from NIH or other agencies. An influx of funds in the early stages of a planned R01/U01/P01 project will provide an opportunity to validate specific project aims and acquire strong preliminary data that will increase the probability of success.

Eligibility

Faculty (tenure-track/tenured and research) on the West Lafayette campus who have exhausted start-up funds are eligible to apply for this program.

Maximum Award

Requests are limited to $30,000 and below.

Application and Submission Process

The program will provide funds within 12-18 months of a planned submission of a R01/U01/P01 application. Faculty should work with their pre-award centers to prepare applications, which must be submitted through the pre-award centers to:nihnewR01program@purdue.edu. Faculty are allowed to submit only one application per cycle as a Principal Investigator.

New R01/U01 Applications

Applications must use Arial 11 point font with 0.5 inch margins, single line spacing and must follow the supplied template, available from a link on the following page: Proposal Templates.

Incomplete applications and/or applications that do not meet these requirements will be returned without review.

New P01 Applications

Applications must use Arial 11 point font with 0.5 inch margins, single line spacing and must follow the supplied template, available from a link on the following page: Proposal Templates.

Incomplete applications and/or applications that do not meet these requirements will be returned without review.

Allowed Costs

  • Faculty salary is not allowed for investigators targeting R01/U01 awards. Faculty salary is allowed for a planned P01, but must not exceed one month total compensated effort summed over all investigators. The intent of this pilot program is to provide funds for student/staff effort, reagents, services (see FAQs for more information (http://www.purdue.edu/research/vpr/funding/nih-faq.php) that will enable the needed preliminary data for new R01/U01/P01 applications.
  • Equipment purchases are not envisioned as part of this pilot program since they are eligible for funding under the EVPRP Laboratory and Core Equipment Program. However, specialized equipment that would bring significant new capabilities to a project or program project may be considered if carefully justified.

Cost Sharing or Matched Funding

Cost-sharing or matched funding is not allowed.

Requirement

Recipients must submit a new NIH R01/U01/P01 application no later than 18 months after receiving funding from this program. Failure to do so may result in the recipient becoming ineligible to receive future funding from EVPRP programs.

Review Criteria

Proposals will be evaluated on the impact they are likely to have on the success of the investigator’s NIH R01/U01/P01 submission.

Post-Award and Reporting Requirements

The Principal Investigator must submit to the Office of the EVPRP (nihnewR01program@purdue.edu): 1) an email reporting the date the new R01/U01/P01 was submitted, and 2) a copy of the review summary of the application when it is received from the NIH.
