Administrative Supplements for U.S. - China Biomedical Collaborative Research on Cancer, Allergy, Immunology, and Infectious Diseases Including HIV/AIDS and its Co-morbidities

The Epidemiology and Genomics Research Program (EGRP) announces an opportunity for eligible National Institutes of Health (NIH) grantees to request administrative supplement support for active grants to enhance ongoing research efforts through collaborations with Chinese scientists under the U.S. – China Program for Biomedical Research Cooperation. Applications are due February 21, 2012, no later than 5:00 P.M., local time of the applicant organization.

The proposed administrative supplement must be within the scope of the peer-reviewed activities and aims approved within the parent grant. The NIH grant mechanisms eligible under this announcement are: active Research Project Grant (R01), Program Project Grant (P01), Research Project Cooperative Agreement (U01), Research Program Cooperative Agreement (U19), Specialized Center - Cooperative Agreement (U54), Cancer Center Support Grant (P30) (only for pilot projects to the Developmental Core with no additional funding to infrastructure), and Specialized Center Grant (P50) awards.

To be eligible as a "parent" award, the grant or cooperative agreement must either be:

  • Funded by the Institutes participating in this program (National Cancer Institute, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, or National Institute of Mental Health); or
  • Focused on HIV/AIDS and its co-morbidities (may be issued by any of the NIH Institutes/Centers).

Individual administrative supplements will be limited to $100,000 direct costs (or up to 25 percent of the direct costs for the current budget year of the "parent" award, if that amount is lower than $100,000).

Awards will be for one year and the existing grant must remain active through the entire period of the supplement (through July 2, 2013). No-cost extensions cannot be used to accommodate this requirement.
