Special Consideration

  • Special Consideration of Research that Bridges the Life and Physical Sciences

    A major focus of the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) since its inception has been the bridging and integration of the life and physical sciences. Over the past few years, this focus has been enforced by Congressional language (e.g., Report Language accompanying the House FY 2004 Appropriations Bill) and has culminated in a recent "Conference on Research at the Interface of the Life and Physical Sciences: Bridging the Sciences."
  • Edward C. Nagy New Investigator Award Policy

    The NIBIB has established a New Investigator Pay Plan with the aim of improving the success that new investigators have in applying for R01 awards.
  • NIBIB Policy for Bridge Funding for New Investigators at Their First Renewal Cycle

    To address the potential interruption in funding for the first renewal of a new investigator's first R01 grant, the NIBIB has established a bridge funding policy for applications that are close to the funding payline.
  • Public-Private Partnership Opportunities at the NIBIB

    The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) supports the development of novel technologies and the translation of those technologies into applications for the benefit of public health. To be relevant and efficient, this effort requires cooperation and collaboration among scientific disciplines and biomedical organizations.
  • Special Consideration of Research that is of High Risk, but Potentially High Reward

    Many members of the extramural community have voiced the concern that NIH peer review and funding practices often tend to favor the more conservative research endeavors proposed by the applicant community. The NIBIB, in keeping with its strategic plan, announces its intent to have a visible impact in addressing this concern.
