Participating Institutes and Centers (ICs) of the National Institutes of
Health (NIH) invite applications for R01 awards to support Bioengineering
Research Partnerships (BRPs) for basic, applied, and translational multi-
disciplinary research that addresses important biological or medical research
problems. In the context of this program, a partnership is a multi-
disciplinary research team that applies an integrative, systems approach to
develop knowledge and/or methods to prevent, detect, diagnose, or treat
disease or to understand health and behavior. The partnership must include
appropriate bioengineering or allied quantitative sciences in combination
with biomedical and/or clinical components. The Principal Investigator (PI)
also serves as the project manager and must be capable of leading the
proposed effort. A BRP may propose design-directed, developmental,
discovery-driven, or hypothesis-driven research at universities, national
laboratories, medical schools, large or small businesses, or other public and
private entities or combinations of these entities. It is expected that a
BRP will have a well-defined goal or deliverable that will be achieved based
on objective milestones specified in the initial application.
On October 11, 2001, the NIH issued a related program announcement (PA)
PA-02-011 (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-02-011.html)
for Bioengineering Research Grants (BRGs). The BRGs differ from the BRPs
in that the research will be performed in a single laboratory, by a single
investigator, or by a small group of investigators. On January 16, 2003, the
NIH issued another related program announcement PA-03-058
(http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-03-058.html) for
Exploratory/Developmental (R21) Bioengineering Research Grants (EBRG). The
EBRGs differ from the BRPs in that (1) the research will be performed in a
single laboratory, by a single investigator, or by a small group of
investigators and (2) the projects are high-risk/high-payoff in nature (R21
mechanism) as compared to the R01-type grants supported by the BRP program.
