Program Announcement: PAR-22-123
The BPI Funding Opportunity Announcement encourages bioengineering applications that will accelerate the development and adoption of promising tools and technologies that can address important biomedical problems. Awards will focus on supporting multidisciplinary teams that apply an integrative, quantitative bioengineering approach to developing technologies, and engage biomedical researchers or clinicians throughout the project. The goal of the program is to support projects that can realize meaningful solutions within 5 – 10 years.
Applicants planning to submit a BPI application with direct costs exceeding $500,000 in any one year are reminded that they must submit a white paper (see below) and seek written agreement from the NIBIB staff at least 6 weeks prior to the application receipt date. Applicants are encouraged to contact the NIBIB staff well in advance of the 6-week deadline to discuss their planned application.
Accessibility remediation for these forms is underway. In the interim, please contact George Zubal at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
NOTE: NIBIB’s policy (that does not apply to NCI, NEI, NIA) is to only consider applications with a maximum budget of $600k/year for a maximum of 5 years. If you are considering applying to the other participating institutes (NCI, NEI, NIA), please contact the contacts referenced at the bottom of this web page for any conditions that apply to their institute-specific funding policies.
