RNCP is pleased to announce a new NOSI - Administrative Supplement for Collaborative Projects Supported by the NIAID/RNCP, encouraging the submission of collaborative projects between funded parties in the program.


The following NOSI was published today in the NIH Guide:   https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-AI-23-044.html


The purpose of this NOSI is to highlight NIAID’s interest in supporting research aimed at fostering collaborations between researchers throughout the NIAID/Radiation and Nuclear Countermeasures Program (RNCP)-funded grant and cooperative agreement portfolio (e.g., U01, U19, R21, R01, P01). The NIAID/RNCP has been tasked with developing safe and effective medical countermeasures (MCMs) and biodosimetry tools for civilians that can be used at least 24 hours post-exposure in a radiological or nuclear public health emergency. The multidisciplinary nature of radiation research lends itself to the establishment of formal partnerships across projects with similar goals, which enables collaborating research groups to achieve outcomes that would likely be impossible without the expertise, models, and facilities available at other institutions. The goal of NOSI is to foster collaborations that will allow awardees to develop data that can be leveraged for new funding that will enhance the state-of-the-science.
