Answers to Common Questions Investigators Ask EGRP Program Directors

Scientific Program Directors in the Epidemiology and Genomics Research Program (EGRP) have a number of responsibilities, one of which is to help potential and current grantees understand NCI and NIH grants policies and procedures.

EGRP’s Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page contains answers to questions about NCI and NIH grants that our staff receive most often. Below are some FAQs you will find answered on this new web page:

We also encourage you to explore the grant resources section of EGRP's website for links to more information about preparing, submitting, and tracking a grant application; the peer review process; award management and reporting; and more. Answers to many more questions are available through the NIH Grants & Funding website.

Additionally, EGRP Program Directors are always available to answer your questions about the submission process. Investigators who do not currently have an assigned Program Director are invited to review the EGRP staff list to identify Program Directors with relevant scientific interests to contact.
