- The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) invites applications for P20 Exploratory Center grants that will support innovative research on wound healing by multidisciplinary teams of investigators. The objectives of this research program are to enable basic and clinical scientists to assemble research teams in order to initiate high-risk, high impact research in wound healing. It is anticipated that these projects will address problems that could lead to significant improvements in interventions that increase the quality and speed of wound healing and provide a greater understanding of the pathophysiology and systems biology of wound healing.
- The NIGMS intends to award up to $2.5 million in FY 2006 to fund three to four new grants in response to this RFA. An applicant may request a project period of up to four years and a budget for direct costs of up to $500,000 in each year.
- Individuals with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research are invited to work with their institution to develop an application for support. An individual may submit only one application as the principal investigator.
- Organizations which may apply include for-profit or non-profit groups, public or private institutions, state or local governments, eligible federal agencies, and domestic institutions. An institution or organization may submit more than one application in response to this RFA.
