NIH Applications for Research Instrumentation
The submission deadline is May 29, 2015.
The objective of these programs is to make available to institutions expensive, commercially available research systems that cost at least $50,000 (SIG Program) or at least $600,000 (HEI Program). The maximum award is $600,000 for the SIG program and $2,000,000 for the HEI Program.
The instruments can only be justified on a shared-use basis and that are needed for NIH-supported projects in basic, translational or clinical areas of biomedical/behavioral research (description from nih.gov). The SIG Program provides funds to purchase or upgrade a single item of expensive, specialized, commercially available instrument or an integrated instrumentation system to be used for research purposes only. To promote cost effectiveness, to encourage optimal sharing among individual investigators, research groups and departments, and to foster a collaborative multidisciplinary environment, the instrument should be integrated in a centralized core facility, whenever possible.
