The purpose of this funding opportunity is to provide promising early career investigators with support to capture the key preliminary data that will support and inform a competitive “R-level” grant application to NIH or other extramural funding source.

Principal Investigator (PI) Eligibility

The PI must 1) have a faculty-level appointment with a minimum of 0.5
FTE support at a participating CTR-IN Institution, and 2) must be eligible to submit extramural grant
applications from their institution as a PI. The PI must devote at least 20% effort (2.4 person months) to the
Pilot Grant project. Per IDeA program policy, an awardee may not concurrently receive funding for their
research program through other IDeA mechanisms (e.g., CTR, COBRE or INBRE).

The goal of the Cardiovascular COBRE Pilot Project Program is to provide funds for junior investigators to produce preliminary data required for a larger externally funded cardiovascular investigation. We will also provide bridge funding to investigators at any stage with a scored but unfunded submission who need modest additional support to submit a successful application to the NHLBI, AHA, or other external agency.
